Starting off the weekend with some Belgian Früli Strawberry Beer, so good! instagram.com/p/ZbpTWbDTQB/
From transforming our dreary, dark and antique bedroom to a bright, clean and modern place, flooring played a huge role. You can see the full finished product of our bedroom and before/afters here.
Below is a step-by-step process on how to achieve the same look, on a very small budget! $200 covering about 260 sq feet that’s not bad at all at $0.76/square foot including a headboard and two nightstands.
Step 1 – We had the one good side sheets cut into 12″ (one foot 30cm) wide strips. To break things up a little we also had some of those strips cut in half lengthwise. Our local hardware store offered free cuts on the plywood.
Step 2 – Lay planks in one corner and cut to fit accordingly. Try to stagger the wood for a more natural and polished look.
Step 3 – Using hardwood flooring nails to attach the plywood, we went straight over the existing thin carpet.
Step 4 – Nail headboard in strips accordingly.
Step 5 – Design and create nightstands to suit your style and needs and attach them to the headboard. These nightstand cost us a whopping $14! Don’t forget to seal everything with a few coats of clear sealant!
Step 6 – Lay down, relax, and enjoy your new updated bedroom done on a budget!
Hope that explained the process. If you have any questions about this tutorial just ask!
EDIT: Since so many of you have asked, the floors have held up beautifully over the years with no sign of wear at all! Thanks for asking!
