I’m a DIY whizz – how to make a headboard for just £4 & it’ll transform you bedroom in seconds

A DIY fan has revealed how he made his own headboard, without having to break the bank on a new one.

The savvy DIY whizz, who posts on TikTok under the handle George The Millennial, explained that he wanted to utilise the space in his bedroom and instead of splashing the cash on a fancy headboard, made his own on a budget, for just £4.

Sharing his DIY tutorial on the video sharing platform, George said: “Here is how to build a headboard for your bedroom, for just £4.

“I posted my bedroom transformation a couple of weeks ago and the response was crazy, thank you so much for all the nice comments.

“But I just felt there was something missing behind my bed.

“So I decided to go to B&Q to look at some colours.

“If you didn’t know this you can actually get a test pot for just £4 soI decided to go with these two colours.

“One had more yellow undertones and the other had more pink undertones. 

“I used masking tape which I had lying around the house, to line up the dots where I measured before.

“I decided to go big with it because I want to make it a feature of the room.

“I want to have the impact of a headboard but without taking up any more space. 

“So I’m trying to utilise my space in the bedroom as much as I can.”

George chose his colour and then in the clip we saw him paint the shape of a headboard onto his white wall.

He continued: “I’ve always been told to brush in the same direction, just to make the quality of the paint look matte.

“Here is the best part of the process – peeling off the paint is so satisfying.

“Here is the result – I got a whole headboard for £4.

“It looks effective and it’s cost-effective.”
