Transform Your Bedroom With DIY Decor
Mattress Spring Display Board
Say goodbye to traditional memo boards; an old mattress spring works just as well. Take a vintage crib mattress spring and scrub it with a wire brush to knock off any rust that could discolor walls. Leave as-is for a distressed look, or spray-paint it a glossy hue. Secure it to the wall with a screw at each corner. Use vintage clothespins, clips and rings to hang whatever items you’d like to display. See Melissa Urban’s full project, with complete instructions and pictures, over at Shabby Love .
Upcycled Sweater Pillows
Give an old sweater a new lease on life by creating a decorative sweater pillow. First, turn the sweater inside out. Place your pillow form onto your sweater and measure around the pillow leaving a small margin to sew. Mark and cut the sweater. Sew the two pieces together, leaving a space to slip the pillow form in. Cut away the excess sweater and turn right side out. Slip the pillow form in, and hand-stitch the opening closed.

Desk Turned Nightstand
A discarded desk can be a great way to create a pair of repurposed nightstands for the bedroom. Look for a desk with symmetrical drawers on each side. Use a saw to cut the drawers away from the desk. Repair any imperfections or holes from the desk deconstruction with wood fill, use a router to match the beveled edges, then paint as desired.

Map Gallery Wall
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn of Decor Demon hit the books well, the Atlas, at least to create this high-impact gallery wall on the cheap. An oversized map was cut into six equal pieces, then tucked into sleek, metallic modern frames.
