Find how you can make a shabby chic inexpensive artistic wooden headboard DIY and an alternative stylish bedside table in no time. Creating a beautiful bedroom sometimes just requires a creative imagination!
Niki, my daughter, went for summer vacation to her grandmas house in Andros and send me back these beautiful bedroom renovation pictures.
Using wooden panels, an old salvaged wooden ladder and oil paint she ended up with a beautiful wooden headboard and a nightstand that are completely customizable, stylish and Greek Island shabby chic.
DIY Wooden Headboard and Bedside Table Instructions
You will need:
Wooden Painted Headboard
MDF panel cut the size of the headboard you want
Wood panels or MDF in various dimensions
Hammer and nails
1. So you start by painting the panels in different colors. The color combination is subjective but for a summer house in Greece blue seems like the best option. Using oil paint gives better color shades and by adding white spirit you can create the shades. Even though oil paint takes longer to dry and has a strong smell it gives a far more interesting result than plastic paint.
2. Using a hammer and nails you place the panels on the MDF board.
Bedside Table Ladder Shelves

Niki found the old wooden ladder in the garden and with a little creativity she build this gorgeous alternative bedside table. You can even purchase a wooden ladder online and you can paint it in the desired color. By using a hammer and nails add as many shelves as you need.
