« Part 1: A few of my ideas of how to turn you bedroom from drab to fab Part 2 of DIY Ideas series no next part

I’m sure we can all have a good go at creating a modern interior with modern styles and trends. We can all buy a bunch of materials and tools and get to work on a brand new untouched space and finish with a masterpiece. However, what if you’re looking to create a more vintage look rather than a modern one? How can you create that antique look yourself? I did a bit of research online in an attempt to figure out for myself and for this blog just how can I create a vintage look for my interior of my house whilst using some of the things I fund around the home and here are some of the things I found.

Pallet Ceiling

This was something I found online that really interested me and got me thinking, “Could I do this in my home”. It gives an interior a really unique look whilst the wood pallets give the ceiling a vintage theme. I found this great article detailing exactly how it can be managed so I’ve linked it here you can all read as well. Could I do this myself? Hmmmmm probably not, it looks a bit too advanced for my DIY skills, however, I’m sure I could get some outside help to help achieve this look!

Hanger Skills

This one is far simpler than the pallet ceiling option but still I like this small concept. Simply get a couple of your old wooden hangers and style them in the bathroom. Turn them upside down and fix them to the wall to create instant towel racks or bathrobe holders. Simple but so yet effective.

Small Pallet Wine Rack

Ok maybe my love for wood is showing here but I just loved the idea of this. Getting a small pallet, or a larger one and cutting it down to size, mounting it on the wall and using it as a wine rack is a nice little way of having something unique and original in your room. You could even use the bottom of the pallet as a glasses holder to put all your wine drinking items in one place. My idea of perfection!

Antique Additions

Finally after researching this for a while I thought, you know what I could try to create these things myself, but in the end it probably won’t look as good as the pictures and article shown! That’s not a problem for me because whilst I’m not the best at DIY, I think the odd thing here and there with a few pieces of vintage furniture dotted around the room could combine to make one hell of a design! What do you think? Does any of this interest you as much as it did me?

You know, I’ve done house removals for a lot of houses in Sydney and I’ve not seen some of these ideas used before! It’s really quite a unique thing to use hangers like this. I’d love to think about what other uniqque ways of using things in your house there are!

The wine rack looks pretty antique actually, I would never suggest that it’s made out of a pallet. And the towel hangers are a great hit. Cheers!

As a contractor I have seen a lot of things that people do with their homes. These are really cool ideas! I especially love the plank ceiling, it gives the room a rustic feel to it. Often times we get asked to remodel bathrooms and kitchens but I am going to keep these ideas in the back of my head for my clients. Check out our website to see some of the jobs we have done! Love getting new ideas to give to our clients. Thanks for the awesome post!

cleaning your mattress
If you haven’t thought about cleaning your mattress lately, consider this: You probably spend six or seven hours on it every night. During that time, dead skin cells, sweat and oil from your body make their way onto it. That’s why Carolyn Forte, director of the Good Housekeeping Institute Cleaning Lab, recommends following this advice every few months to keep your bed fresh.

1. Ditch the dust.
The easiest way to tackle dust is to use the upholstery tool on your vacuum cleaner to go over the top and sides of the mattress and as much of the box spring as you can access. Press firmly on the tool to draw out dust beneath the fabric’s surface. Then use the crevice tool to get into the quilting, along the edge welting and where any pillow top is attached. If you have a garment steamer, go over the mattress with the steamer before you vacuum to help kill and remove dust mites lurking near the surface.

2. Wipe out old stains.
If pets sleep with you, or you like to snack in bed, chances are your mattress may have some stains on it. The easiest way to remove them is with an upholstery cleaner formulated to remove pet stains, like Good Housekeeping Seal-holder Bissell Pet Stain and Odor Remover ($19, amazon.com). “They not only remove stains but also contain enzymes to tackle odors,” Forte says. Avoid over-wetting the mattress, and let it dry thoroughly before making the bed.

3. Kill any odors.
For any telltale smells, spray the mattress and box spring with a disinfecting spray, like Lysol ($7, amazon.com). It’s safe to use on fabric and kills bacteria that causes odors. To freshen your mattress between cleanings, sprinkle some Arm & Hammer Baking Soda ($12 for a 4-pack, amazon.com) onto the fabric, wait 15 minutes and vacuum.

Now that you know your mattress is clean, make sure your pillows and mattress pad are dust- and odor-free too. And watch out for these mistakes you might be making when you wash your sheets.
