Refresh your bedroom with a new headboard! It can be simple and fun to create a unique headboard on your own. Here are some ideas to get you inspired:
Install storage and/or display shelves behind your bed as a headboard. Decorate with photos, plants, books, or trinkets to use the space efficiently and add interest to the room.
Hinge together old shutters that you have repainted or left plain and use for a cottage style headboard. Some ideas: place them vertically or horizontally; use one set or several; paint multiple shutters using complementary colors; distress the shutters; hang photos from the shutters.
Paint a design (or use a decal) behind your bed in place of a headboard.
Put fabric behind rustic frames and line them up behind your bed as a headboard. Put contrasting fabric in each pane of a multi-pained rustic window for a similar effect.
Use a curtain as a headboard. Many different styles of curtains are available–just pick the ones that best fit the style of your bedroom. You could even extend the curtains to wrap around the entire bed for a more private feel. On a similar note, canopies can make for very beautiful headboards as well.
One popular look right now is to use a rustic or vintage door as a headboard. You can overhaul the door by sanding and repainting it, or you can simply leave it as-is. Some people even leave on door knobs and knockers!
Use a large canvas photograph, a series of framed photos, or piece of artwork in place of a headboard. Photographs of loved ones or artwork you have created can add a personal touch to your bedroom.
Use pieces from an old shipping pallet to create a really unique headboard.
