It’s easy to make your own headboard with these DIY headboard ideas. They won’t break the bank and you’ll get something more stylish and unique than you would ever find in a furniture store.
If you have some great family photos or favorite pieces of art, put them center stage with this easy DIY headboard idea. Create the look of a headboard by hanging family photos or artwork on the wall. Choose frames with the same color to create a unified look. If you already have frames, just spray paint them to match. Try all black and white or all sepia toned photos to create a stunning focal point in the room.
A great way to make a headboard really feel like a piece of furniture is to use a door. Find an old door at a flea market, thrift store, salvage yard, or anywhere else you can get one for cheap. Sand and paint the door, or keep in its original old style for extra charm and character. Make sure to remove the knob. When you’re ready to mount, just turn it on its side (knob side toward the bottom) and attach to the wall.
Who says curtains are just for windows? Why not use them to bring this beautiful DIY headboard idea to life. Attach the curtain rod to the top of the wall or on the ceiling. Hang the curtain panels and you are done. This is a great way to add some color and pattern to your room and to create a beautiful focal point. It’s also the perfect fix if your bed is against a wall with a window. For a canopy effect, carry the panels around the sides of the bed. This works great with a sheer panel and creates a soft, airy feel. Try a faux silk drapery for a little luxury or try a linen panel for a more casual look.
Here is a DIY headboard idea that will take you just minutes to create. Simply install a curtain rod and drape a favorite quilt, blanket, or fabric piece over the top. Voila: instant headboard! Another bonus: you can change it up as often as you like.
