Create a vintage bedroom in 5 steps
Make your own headboard
Don't go with convention when it comes to your headboard - instead, create the illusion of one using card.
To do so, take a length of card and fold it in half to make it double thickness. Sketch half the headboard shape — from edge to centre — so that the middle point is at the fold. Cut it out and unfold to reveal a whole, symmetrical headboard shape. Use this as a template to cut a shape out of a length of wallpaper. Coat the back of the paper shape with spray adhesive and smooth onto the wall behind the bed.
