DIY Glamorous Bed Redo
It has always been a dream of mine to have a bed like this,
It’s a bit out of my price range at a $9,000 price tag. Alas, I decided to see what I could do with my own bed to add a little luxe. Here is what I started with:
Not bad right? Lines are pretty, nice detail, but for me there was just to much dark wood. I also have a tall dresser that matches it, and two nightstands (the nightstands are not matching just the same wood tone) so now you see why I wanted to glam it up.
We started by laying out a grid on the inside panels.
This would be where we would add the tufting. Next we sprayed it a cream paint.
While my trusty husband/assistant painted I started to cover the panels with thin foam and batting.
I used a cream lush velvet as my fabric. While the paint dried we started the really fun part.
My handy hubby put a small staple right above where our studs would be going, just to hold it in a bit stronger and deeper.
Then we used this awesome tool to hammer the stud base in.
And then the crowning jewel….The diamond studs were screwed into place!
Now it was time to bring the masterpiece together. We attached the tufted panels to the headboard from the back.
We were so excited to finally see it put together, and the outcome was just like I had imagined! See, I told you it would be okay if we totally changed the old bed, I know my husband was having a bit of a complex about drawing and drilling holes into the old bed. Now he couldn’t be happier.
All the hard work has really paid off, and some how I seem to sleep a little better in such a glamorous bed. Wouldn’t you?
