Using one of the new season linen sheets the style team have created a rustic headboard. It's a simple idea to give bedrooms a makeover on a highly affordable budget.

H&M Home's headboard hack

H&M Home shared the headboard hack with its 4.3million followers, '🌟 DIY hack: Make a beautiful headboard for your bed'

Explaining, 'The easiest way to make a headboard like ours is to use an old headboard that you want to give new life. Simply use our linen sheets, fold it and sew a seam at each side, then slip it over the headboard. Or even easier, use a staple gun to attach it to the backside of the board.' Simple, yet so effective as the image shows.

Sadly the linen flat sheet in question is not available online (yet), but is in stores. Prices start from £39.99.
