If you’re anything like me, your bedroom is probably the last place that gets any kind of design love, am I right? Not that we don’t want to focus our attention there. It’s just, unless you live in a studio apartment where all your guests will see your sleeping area, the rest of the house trumps the bedroom more often than not. That is not to say I don’t have ideas for our bedroom. I am definitely in no short supply of those. And one of the first things I want to do when it’s time to work on the bedroom is create some sort of headboard for our bed. Here are some wonderfully creative inspirations to get your creative juices flowing as well.
What a clever idea to use oars as a headboard as featured on Bees Knees Bungalow.
This headboard found at Better Homes & Gardens provides a natural feel for the minimalists.
I would so LOVE to have a tufted headboard, maybe not as tall as the one below from Houzz, although it is beautiful. The dark hues and white are fab, don’t you think?
Ahhhh…the room below from Better Homes & Gardens has such a soft beachy feel. I could definitely fall asleep in a room like this. And what a unique idea for a headboard. Although our bed is right below a window, I might be able to achieve the same look. This is definitely one for the ‘maybe’ list!
Anything Shabby Chic scores major points in my book and this headboard from Better Homes & Gardens definitely fits that bill. This look would not be too difficult to achieve either. All you need to do is go to your local re-store or find an old home being renovated or demolished and pick through pieces of wood doors, windows and frames. This headboard was actually made from an old mantel, but you could get the same look with old moldings or window casings.
This cute shelving headboard featured at Better Homes & Gardens made out of an old dresser is such a brilliant idea! I just wish I would have thought of it 😉
Ahhh…here’s my mustard yellow again. The Hubby thinks I’m crazy for this current obsession with mustard given our whole house was once yellow and I detested it. I tried to explain to him that, one…yellow and mustard are not the same color and two…the difference between a color in small doses and an entire house plastered with the color is like night and day. And the headboard in mustard below as featured by Better Homes & Gardens has the perfect ratio of mustard, don’t you think?
Here is another Shabby Chic styled headboard made from a couple of old doors. This room featured on HGTV is right up my ally and who wouldn’t love it with that gorgeous chandelier, right?
The shutter headboard from HGTV is adorably cute as well! Again, this would be so easy to do with what people are throwing away these days. Re-stores, thrift stores, old homes under renovation…there are so many places to find stuff like these shutters.
Do you know how easy it wold be to make a headboard just like the one below from West Elm? We’re talking easier than it is to cook dinner. Yeah, that easy! All you need is the right size piece of plywood, some door or crown molding and some paint and presto…you have a pretty new headboard.
Well, I don’t know about you but I’m definitely inspired to get going on my headboard project now. The only challenge I’m going to have is which style to pick?
Thanks for stopping by!
