I always get a little nervous when I post any DIY that involves altering books in anyway because I inevitably get a lot of comments/reblogs, etc of people saying ‘Sacrilege! Book destroyer! Gah!’. These bum me out but I also know that there are a ton of people who love these. I see it more as celebrating books and how much they mean to me than destroying them. These books would probably sit in a bin in an op shop before being chucked in the rubbish, so in a way you are saving them! I truly love this idea, though I don’t think I dust enough to justify having one! The beauty of this is that it’s also a statement piece so you’re not going to need a lot more decoration in your room. Just make sure you secure the books as directed or you might end up with your head in a book…literally!
Storage Bed | This Old House
OK, so this is a real full on building project but if you’re looking for a Summer project this would be perfect! Or if you can convince your favourite builder to make it for you that would be perfect too! These beds are perfect for small houses with no storage, though who couldn’t do without more storage space anyway?
Stamped Pillowcase | Show Tell Share
You know how sometimes you see a DIY and think - why didn’t I think of that?! I see so many pretty stamps at Spotlight but I have no idea what I’d do with them. I’ve always wanted custom bedlinen (no matter how I try, I can never find one I love that doesn’t cost as much as my bed!) and this seems like an easy way to do it. I think I would probably go with a fabric paint though so I could still wash my linens.
Chalk Headboard | Two Fly Chicks
If you’ve been umming and awing about wether or not to paint one of your walls with chalkboard paint, I think that this is a pretty convincing reason to do it! I just love that drawn headboard. The thing with the blackboard wall is that you can change it up as soon as you get bored with it - and the only cost is going to be for a box of chalk! And bonus: chalkbord pens. Have you seen them? They are truly awesome. I think I just talked myself into doing this. I’m so convincing!
Nailhead Trim Headboard | Centsational Girl
Speaking of bedrooms, my bedhead really needs a makeover and this is perfect. I really love the look of studs (if you’ve been reading my blog, I’m pretty sure you already know that!) and this would look great with that tissue paper background. Very classy and grown up, and pretty easy to make if you have or know someone who has a jigsaw. That is what I want next on my tools list. I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t cut off my hand.
DIY Fabric Headboard | Grosgrain
I love the Grosgrain blog, she is such an amazing crafter. Currently she’s doing a bedroom makeover and is sharing her process with the crafty community. This headboard is from day 3, so make sure to check back on her blog to see the other two days. I’m lookibng forward to her Ruffled Duvet & the fur rug DIYs!
