Scandi style box-room makeover

Scandinavian themed bedroom makeover featuring Scandinavian colour palette, diy headboard and budget interior ideas

It's been all change in our house recently - we undertook the (actually really complicated!) task of switching our two spare rooms over, giving the baby a larger room of her own and turning the tiny box room into a guest room. I've always struggled with this room, as you can probably tell by the fact its now had three different incarnations in the past year (see my sewing room makeover, and nursery makeovers). I think this was mainly due to the teeny size of the room, and the fact that its largely been used as a bit of a 'dumping ground' for all those bits and bobs you can't find a home for.

DIY Upholstered Headboard

I've been lusting over one of those beautiful upholstered headboards for so long, and when I decided I was going to give our spare room a Scandi-inspired makeover, I knew I had to have one. However, after being unable to find one for less than about £150 the only option I had was to try and make my own! So I thought I'd show you how I did it - for less than £40 and in no more than three hours.
