D.I.Y Bed Head

I did it!

I am so thrilled with this bed head. I took all progress pics and I can make a tutorial if need be. Let me know if you want a tutorial.


Sneak peek!

I did a piped edge


It is 50 mm deep and simply leaning against the wall with the weight of the mattress ensemble holding it in place.

I was going to do a piped edge on the back edge, but thought it didn’t need it.


Tah Dah!

What do you think?

It is nearly 170 cms tall. (taller then me)

 I made it that tall to accommodate European pillows which I haven’t purchased yet. I want to make covers up for them in LUXE fabric. Embroidered etc. .  all the bells and whistles.


My curtain rods that I want to replace. I want to have one single rod that has a right angle bend/curve to go around the corner and possibly bend back into the wall! I have found a brand that can do this for me.

Plus I want to make new curtains. Thick fabric, block out lining and wide trim tape!

And that is my ikea rast hack bed sides. I quite like them too.


I’m really happy with the outcome.
