DIY Headbaord Ideas

  1. I love how varied headboards can be these days. Just about anything will work! Some of these ideas are great......and some of them not so great (in my opinion!). Sorry, but I don't want chalk dust anywhere close to my bed! Whether it's a found object, hand painted or handmade, hopefully these ideas will inspire you to create something new. 
This first one is cut out of sheet metal. I love the look of it but can't imagine sleeping next to such sharp corners! Let's hope the edge was treated.

    Painting it a fun color helps make the bed even more of a focal point:

    I love how tall this one is:

    I love this alternative look to an upholstered headboard. Using nails, it gives it a slightly more rustic and comfortable look.

    This headboard is just a wall decal that pops against a bright wall color.

    This one is a blown up picture they found and had framed!

    I think we've all seen this before in the blog world. It never seems to get old though! That would be terrifying to have a plate fall on your face in the middle of the night, haha!

And here is the ever popular chalkboard paint. Like I said above, I think it's a cute idea but the thought of chalk dust on my bed and pillows creeps me out. I can't even stand the way chalk feels on my hands!
