We’re always looking to create bold and colourful design moments, but we don’t always have the funds to splurge on beautiful furniture. Luckily, we know it’s possible to transform any room into a trendy space on a budget if you’re ready to work.
Here’s how we transformed Sarah’s bedroom into a golden hour inspired oasis by painting an arched headboard. This is definitely the article we were missing when we tackled a DIY headboard on camera for the very first time!
This is an obvious starting place, but we can’t stress enough how important it is to actually test out your paint before committing. Paint changes in the light, and even if you think you’ve found your perfect shade in store, chances are it’s going to look different morning, noon and night!
This is completely based on personal design preference, and size of your bed. Motelier Tip: We suggest keeping the centrepoint low, near your baseboard, to create the most even arch.
But, if you’ve got a higher bed frame, just bump your centrepoint up a few inches! Motelier Tip: We suggest cutting your string with a few extra inches for tying room. Once you’ve drawn the arch outline, use a fine brush to trace the inside edges. If you were sloppy on the tracing, keep your white paint on standby to do some touch ups!
