I did it. I finally made my upholstered headboard – and (surprisingly) it was easy! For anyone needing to add a little ‘umph’ to their bedroom decor, I highly suggest you give a DIY headboard a go. Here’s mine – it really makes the bed more of a focal point in my farmhouse room. Click to read my steps for how I crafted this together. The room is almost complete – now it’s just desperate for artwork!! So close to calling this project a wrap!

Now in its third year, MTL à Table (a.k.a. Montreal Restaurant Week), returns on October 30. Running through November 9, the event offers prix fix menus in 140 restaurants throughout the city. Priced at $19, $29 and $39 the set three-course meals allow patrons to hit up their go-to spot for less or try a new place at an affordable price point. It’s the perfect excuse to plan a date night or to catch up with friends. Check out a few mouth-watering dishes from a couple of choice restos below.
As a DIYer, part of the beauty of ‘doing it yourself’ is seeing something transform before your eyes. Often times that transformation requires days or weeks, and sometimes months. On the other hand, sometimes a transformation happens right before your eyes thanks to a can of spray paint.
Spray paint is the closest thing to magic I’ve found. There is a huge array of colours to choose from, matte or glossy finishes, and even metallic. My personal favourite is gold. A little gold spray paint goes a long way to dress things up.
If you’ve got a few minutes, here are five fun items to whip out the spray paint for. In a few quick coats and not much effort you’ll witness a magical transformation right in front of your eyes.
I’m going to make a bold claim here. It does not matter if your day has been bad, good, or great, because it’s about to get way better!
