Headboard Galore

A headboard is the equal to a mantle piece. As is the bed to a fireplace- the focal point of the room. To indecisive to chose an elaborate bed frame? Not to worry. Chose from some DIY tricks to personalize your room.

Easy: Curtain Rod

You can be conservative with the length and width of how much fabric you show or go for dramatics and have a big bold pattern that stretches floor to ceiling. It’s all about your personal style. This is great for the design faint of heart. Easily changeable for the seasons and leaves minimal damage in your walls for those who are renting. Don’t forget about the old toothpaste trick!

Fair: Decal

So many options and so affordable. (check this Etsy seller) This is an afternoon partners project. It gets so hard to see if things straight when you are on top of them. Will not leave any marks or residue on  your wall. Great for kids rooms.

Difficult: Mirrored

Level in hand get those pencils out and start an outline for your new tiled mirror headboard. Self adhesive, found at local hardware stores but for more variety in sizes try here. Ideal for small rooms with not a lot of light. This detail will really open up your space.

Ambitious: Padded Board

The wonderful Grace Bonnie from Design Sponge made this striking headboard with her own two hands! He cat is pretty cute, too. Check out the video below for a great how to and check out her BLOG for a tour of her bedroom!
