A totally new look that didn’t break the bank

The purchase of a $5 piece of fabric was the impetus to make this change to my bedroom. I liked the natural colours in the stripes and used it to recover my headboard.

The headboard is made from two canvases. In the past when I recovered them, I did each one individually, but this time the fabric was wide enough to cover both so they look like one.

$6 for the canoe paddles, which I added my children’s birth dates to. Stuff gathered from around the house, a newly covered ottoman and a couple of cushions later, and my room is now ready for fall nesting.

It is a bit of a tight fit, but I’m not ready to give up my king size bed, ever :)

Because I kept the wall colours neutral, making a change to this room is easy. Here are some other looks achieved by changing the bedding and accessories.

  15. I never thought of using canvases for a headboard. That is flippin' genius!! If we didn't already have headboards we like, I would steal that idea.

    Beautiful makeovers. All of them!
