A Kmart shopper has shared her incredible DIY trick for creating her own stylish rattan bed head using a room screen that was being sold at the popular store.

The woman, from Perth, took to a Kmart DIY and Hacks Facebook page to reveal how she transformed two $69 room screens into a bedhead that resembles similar style that are normally worth hundreds of dollars more.

"Finally got my hands on some of these to try an idea I'd had for a while," she wrote in the post that was liked over 6.3K times.

"I wanted a rattan headboard that fit a king bed, but I was not keen to part with so much money...so I hacked the room dividers.

"I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. When it's placed behind the bed you can't even tell where the miss match pattern is."


She went on to reveal all it took were two dividers - though they aren't available from Kmart at the moment - and some cable ties and she even has one panel left spare.

"I separated all the panels. I inverted one and used that for the middle panel then put 2 panels either side of it and joined them with cable ties (very secure). 

"I still have 1 panel spare for a potential future hack, the possibilities are endless," she concluded thanking group members for "all the love" for her creation.

The post received hundreds of comments from people dubbing the DIY project 'genius'.

"Bloody genius... well done looks incredible," was one response.

"BEST HACK EVER. I too won’t pay the price of rattan headboards but this I’d do," another said.

"I actually love this so much," was another comment, while a third wrote: "Wow, that is stunning. I LOVE it."

The money-saving aspect was indeed a huge hit. When looking at a few comparable styles Adairs sells a Home Republic Bahama Rattan Bedhead Half Moon for $500 for a king, while Freedom has a square-shaped RAFFLES Bed Head for $649.
