Creative & DIY Headboards
My number one pet peeve in bedrooms: no headboard. No matter what else you do to a bedroom, the lack of a headboard makes the room feel unfinished. When I say “headboard”, it doesn’t have to be defined as an intricately carved piece of wood or metal, or even a piece of the bed and frame. It is something that grounds the bed to the wall and in the room. A bed will always be the focal point of the bedroom and a headboard is the crowning moment.
If you don’t have a headboard, or don’t love what you have, I’ve collected several creative headboards for inspiration. I hope you’ll also find inspiration for your own home.
Let’s start with the simple option: fabric. It can be hung behind the bed or brought up to the ceiling to create a canopy affect.
And the following require a bit more work and DIY labor, but the results are well worth it.
