DIY Headboard Ideas
Birch and Snow Ski Headboard
A slice of a birch tree trunk anchored by two vintage snow skis makes a fun rustic headboard. All we did for the birch was slice a thin section from a tree trunk. Then, I sanded and finished it with matte polyurethane. The light weight piece was easy to screw into the wall.
Hanging Bench Cushion Headboard
Upholstered headboards always looks so lush and comfortable. Here is a super easy way to get the same look! Just hang a bench cushion from a section of molding or a shelf and you have yourself an instant chic headboard.
Vintage Door Headboard
Store Sign Headboard
I desperately want to find an old salvaged store sign to hang it as a rustic vintage headboard like this! So easy but packed with so much…WOW!
Vintage Shutter Headboard
Old shutters are pretty easy to come by at antique or architectural artifacts stores. I love the colors of these which give a light beachy feel and the added letters spelling the word “quiet” are such a fun idea for a coastal headboard.
Chalkboard As A Headboard
A chalkboard is a super fun idea for a whimsical headboard. You can write..or draw.. any message you want!
Curtain Panel Headboard
Here is a unique idea using a curtain panel and some sharpie markers. Write out your favorite quotes or song lyrics for some hip headboard decor.
Chair Back Headboard Idea
This one caught my eye because I already happen to have one chair back and I also love to collect wooden chairs. It is such a fun idea for a creative headboard!
DIY Wood Headboard
I love the fact that this headboard was made with new wood that was made to look old with stain. It is a very simple construction and you can even get the wood cut to size at a home improvement store if you need to. The added white shelf adds a nice amount of chic.
Tree Branch Headboard
This last rustic headboard is a definite winner in my book! A big part of our decor is already made up of small trees so this would fit right in.
