Plaster isn’t just for patching up mistakes – the texture of this fixer-upper can be used to create on-trend interior features. Here’s how we used plaster to make this stylish headboard.
Using a small roller with a long nap that can reach into the textured grooves, apply primer and leave to dry. Apply two coats of paint, leaving to dry after each coat. Position the headboard against the wall and secure using fixings suitable for your wall type.
