How do you spend your weekends? While there are some who declutter, take part in different activities, and work on a couple of DIY projects, there are some who prefer to stay in the bedroom to catch up on sleep. If you're looking forward to an uninterrupted slumber, we're sure that you would want to keep your room cozy and relaxing as much as possible.

If you're thinking of crafting one for your space, here's a quick step-by-step guide that you can follow.
