Improve your bedroom old-school style! Here are DIY tips for a vintage-style bedroom.
Headboard with built-in reading lights
For people who grew up in rural areas and are now living in the city, take yourself back to those days by building a new headboard with a recycled twist. If you happen to have or know someone who has unused pieces of weathered wood, then you already have your materials.
A weathered headboard will give your bedroom a rustic focal point that can be accented in different ways. Go to the nearest hardware store in your area and purchase the reading lights that will be mounted on both sides of the headboard.
Rustic brass bed frame with a light color scheme
A brass bed gives your room a rustic charm that is enunciated by your wooden floor. Put cotton and lace fabrics throughout to add that light and airy feel. The mostly white-colored palette design with green accented bed frames is the source of the airiness.
Elegant vanity design
Your vanity corner of the room can be the secondary focal point next to the bed. Find a piece of furniture that can set the tone that you want. An elegant mirror can add the right touch to any vintage room. Be smart of the placing of your vanity as well. A good way to position an elegant mirror is to have a view of your window from looking at it.
Mini packing crate organizer
A two-in-one purpose for reusing. Use a mini packing crate to organize your stuff in your vanity area. This is both a decorative and functional idea that adds to the vintage look, which fits your “not sacrificing one over the other theme”. You can also fill the extra space in the crate with flowers placed on styrofoam.
Stacked luggage nightstand
Add patterns and some texture to your vintage bedroom by stacking luggage bags to make a nightstand. Apart from having the simplest and cleverest nightstand, you can also use the stacked luggage for storing items like blankets.
Pretty simple right? It’s always great to redecorate and re-purpose your home yourself, especially your bedroom. You don’t even have to make as much purchases with these tips as you would’ve probably thought. So get to work and get your new vintage-style bedroom.
