I’m particularly obsessed with bedroom improvements at the moment (constantly craving that perfect night’s sleep!) so I’ve popped together 29 of the best bedroom DIY ideas and projects… perhaps you can bookmark a few for the weekend?
1. Book Planters
For the little book worms out there these gorgeous book planters will look divine on your beside table.
2. Map Flowers
Even though these are technically a wedding DIY, a garland of these map flowers would look beautiful strung along a bed head.
3. Ikea Hack Mini Drawers
I bloody love an Ikea hack and this one is rad. Perfect to store your make up or trinkets on your dressing table.
4. Cut Out Work Art
Even though word art has been done to death in recent years I can feel a little resurgence coming on… love this DIY from The Paper Mama.
5. Cinder Block Bedside Table
A perfect lesson in how to not make cinder block furniture look cheap and tacky.
6. Washi Tape Picture Frames
Perfect for renters. Stick your favourite photos to the wall with Washi tape frames and then peel it off when you move out.
7. DIY Dotty Wallpaper
I absolutely ADORE this wallpaper DIY. It’s literally little black stickers stuck to the wall. Brilliant.
8. Sharpie Wallpaper
This is another wallpaper DIY but this one is done with Sharpies. Some people are so clever, it’s almost irritating.
9. Gemstone Mirror Frame
I think we all got sick of birthstone decor in the 90s but I stumbled upon this little ‘gem’ (snort!) and I thought it was quite a gorgeous little bedroom project.
10. Crochet Poufs
I may be delusional but these almost look achievable right?
11. Marbled Trinkets
I just loved this nail polish marble DIY – Something tells me there will be a lot of marbling going on this weekend.
12. Adult Hama Bead Mobile
I have BUCKETS of Hama beads hiding in my craft cupboard and I’m so stoked to finally have a way to use them.
13. Wool Patchwork Cat
I’m a sucker for homemade toys and this little guy would look pretty cosy on almost any bed.
14. Washi Tape Vases
A super cheap and easy way to up-cycle old bottles and jars for your bedroom.
15. Cardboard Bedroom Silhouettes
How amazing are these furniture silhouettes? Perfect if you aren’t planning on staying in the same spot for too long.
16. Hanging String Table
Such a brilliant and simple idea for space saving. Hang a circular chopping board next to your bed as a bedside table.
17. Bed Head Art
A simple and temporary head board. Perfect for people who like to change their mind a lot.
18. Ikea Hack Malm Drawers
I own about three Malm sets of drawers and I’m definitely giving one of them a makeover soon.
19. Leather and Wood Organiser
I need one of these near my door to stop the avalanche of mail. It’s on my to-list.
20. Hanging Notepad
Mr Smaggle and I sometimes have morning ‘stand up’ meetings where we talk about what we’re going to do that day and this would be perfect for stand up note taking.
21. Hand Painted Cushions
Mr Smags is very funny about cushions for some reason but I think he’d quite like if I made a few of these.
22. Gold Acrylic Clipboards
I’m an absolute glutton for stationary and rather than spend a bajillion dollars at Kiki K, I’m quite fond of an office bedroom DIY.
23. Painted Dresser
Love this painted dresser. Furniture is usually so bland so why not jazz it up with snazzy paint job?
24. Handwriting Statement Wall
How beautiful to have a wall with your own handwriting on it? If we ever did this in the Smaggle House it would have to be Mr Smags handwriting. Mine is shocking.
25. Tote Bag Cushion Covers
How annoyed are you that you never thought of this yourself? I’d probably cut the handles off and sew them up (control freak) but they look quite cute as it.
26. Type Felt Rug
I love a good rug and this would look amazing underneath a glass top table.
27. String Pendant Lamp
This is literally made from string and glue. So cheap and so awesome.
28. Copper Clothes Hanger
29. Ikea Hack Beside Table
Who’s totally keen to haul ass to the hardware store and spend a week’s pay on varnish and gold leaf?
Which projects are you putting on your DIY to-do list?
