Like most older split-level homes, our master bedroom is very small. It makes me crack up to even call it a master bedroom, given its size. Although our bedroom before our recent overhaul wasn't terrible looking, it was definitely "Plain Jane." It’s like we tried updating the room but never quite made it to the finish line.
I've always had a thing for tents, tee pees, forts and hideaways. And there is something so magical about a beautiful canopy that drapes over a bed. This version is extremely easy to make using a hula hoop and some sheer curtain panels. I added playful pom pom trim to mine for a special touch. Give it a try and have sweet dreams under your beautiful canopy!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

Now, more then ever, budget is an issue in my new life as a single gal so when it came to putting the finishing touches on my new guest bedroom I knew I was going to have to get really creative. Once I completed the old steel bed frame ( check out that transformation here) I really really really wanted some ruffles for a bed skirt. But not like really girly ruffles, they still needed to be farmhouse and country ruffles, nothing too feminine because that just wouldn’t be my style.
Today I’m going to show you how my husband built a window bench with storage for our master bedroom.I’ve had this project burning in the back of my mind for a long time. Initially, I really wanted a window bench with drawers, but we had an incident, you can read more about it on my blog (https://avantimorocha.com) so I decided to ditch the drawers and simply make a bench with a trunk instead.
Is Halloween a big thing for you? I would love to create a truly spooky scene in our garden but when there are little people living in your street it's probably not a good idea. I would hate to be the cause of them having nightmares. So we usually decorate on a small scale. This year we created a this little Halloween love story..........
Pallets are the perfect material for DIY projects. They are cheap, available, and simple to mount, which is precisely why I want to share a couple of easy steps for making your own pallet bed frame. Personally, I skipped some of the steps along the way because I found some healthy and undamaged pallets suitable for my “vision”, but I will provide full instructions to guide you. It will certainly serve as an inspiration. The best part about this is that stacking a pallet bed gives you a lot of options. You can make a unique piece of furniture that can also free up space and open up your room. So, let’s dig into the basic requirements.
Hello everyone!!! Welcome to my life with the Messy Boys! Even though we live on a budget, we always find a cheap way to learn and have fun. If you would like to have some fun with us, please subscribe to our channel and like our videos!!! Thank you!!!We made this from the wooden parts of our old bed frame. But I`m pretty sure you can use pallets, just probably won`t have to cut them in half. Here is the step by step of how to build a garden path from an old bed frame or pallets. The pathway we are building is to a sandbox that we have built for the kids so let's get to work!
Using a pallet and a few pipe fitting pieces, this super easy and rather inexpensive raised doggie bed platform was born! In the summertime, my husband and I switch vehicles which allows me to drive around in his pick up truck, picking up all kinds of good stuff including the free pallet used to create this project. I was even able to reuse a former dog bed, made out of orthopedic foam, to create a new and cozy place for any pup to sleep. For a final personalized touch, a chalkboard name plate was added. This project is similar to the raised industrial dog feeder project that I have on my blog and Hometalk.
I have seen lots of beautiful pet beds, made using pallets. I absolutely love them and wanted one of my own for my furry kiddos- the challenge... I couldn't find any with steps- we needed steps! My two miniature dachshunds had to be able to climb up (I loved the castors, as I wanted to be able to move it around and let's face it, pallets are heavy!) and the Castor's made it too high for them. With zero experience, I took the plunge! I figured.. "how hard can it be??" Well... within a couple of hours, it started coming together and I have to say, it's perfect!! They literally wait... each morning, for me to bring their mattress outside and place it in their "thrown" and they know it's a special place, just for them!
This master bedroom just needed a face lift. No major construction or renovation. As a matter of fact it was done on quite the small budget. I wanted a brick wall behind the bed but after pricing it out I decided I would make my own. And let me tell you, it looks real!
In this project, I turned seven standard kitchen cabinets from IKEA into a platform bed for my daughter. The total cost was around $480 for the cabinets, lumber and supplies - not including the bedding, which she already had. There is a huge storage area under the mattress which is accessed through one of the cabinets that has no back.
If you have a bedroom that needs a little touch to make the room complete, this is definitely a project worth looking into. As a kid, I always loved the thought of a 4-post bed -- there's something princess-y about it I guess. So now, instead of a princess, you can feel like a queen in your castle! :) We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.
