    Woman transforms old headboard into a stunning Scandinavian-inspired piece for her bed

    Savvy DIY expert transforms an old dated headboard into a stunning on-trend piece for just $110 – and reveals how you can too

    • A woman has transformed her old headboard into a stunning piece for her bed 
    • She attached rows of half-rounded pine dowels to the tired white wooden frame 
    • The woman said she spent just $110 on materials from hardware store Mitre 10 

    A thrifty woman has transformed an old headboard into a stunning Scandinavian-inspired piece for her bedroom without spending a fortune.

    The Australian woman upcycled the tired white bedhead by attaching rows of half-rounded pine dowels to the wooden frame using a heavy duty adhesive glue. 

    ‘Revamped my bedhead. Still have little minor things to finish but happy with it,’ she wrote in a Facebook group.

    The woman purchased all the material from Mitre 10 for just $110 and she had the pine wood pre-cut to the size of the board.

    Rustic wooden bedheads can cost upwards of $499.

    ‘I needed 62 pieces cut for the whole bedhead… They’re just half-rounded pine dowels,’ she explained.

    ‘You just use the Selleys Liquid Nails [$15.95 construction adhesive]. It’s the best stuff. I put mine on then scraped it down, you don’t need a lot. 

    ‘Then add the wood. Sticks and holds straight away. For the top piece, I bought a piece of pine and drilled screws in the top. It’s very easy to do.’

    Her post was met with more than 1,700 ‘likes’ and more than 250 comments.

    Hundreds were amazed by her DIY job, while others said it was a great way to upcycle old pieces of furniture instead of tossing them out.

    And it isn’t the first time Australians have created their own bedheads at home.

    Earlier this year, Sydney wellness blogger Keira Rumble made her own coastal-inspired headboard using Tasmanian Oak half-round dowels from Bunnings.

    ‘This DIY bedhead is perfect for those that are renting, as you don’t need to fix anything to the wall, and you can bring it with you when you move (although, it is a little heavy and you’ll need two people to help carry it),’ she wrote on her blog.

    She decided on Tasmanian Oak wood because of its decorative design and because it has a ‘subtle’ range of colours, so it was find to keep in its natural state.

    ‘I didn’t want to paint or varnish it. I was recently watching an episode of Grand Designs and the house that was getting built was centred around LOW VOC finishes, which means using pants with fewer volatile chemicals,’ she said.

    ‘The Tasmanian Oak isn’t treated with any chemicals, so this was the perfect fit.’

    Keira only needed a few basic pieces of equipment like a pencil, ruler, hammer, tape measure, sandpaper and handsaw after choosing her wood.

    She opted for a full dowel finish, which looks cut off at the end of the half cylinders, because she preferred the look of it.

    ‘You could always frame the headboard but this takes away from the round finish in my opinion,’ she said.

    ‘We also used the offcuts from the MDF Board (medium-density fibreboard to sit behind the dowels) as a little frame for the headboard as we have square skirting, so our headboard sits on top of these and finishes flush to the wall.’
