DIY headboards

strip walls with walpapered headboard

Every bedroom is different but most have a common focal point, the headboard. Headboards come in a variety of styles and I will show you how to make your own using very little tools and ones that can be changed as often as possible without breaking the bank.

We will star with the simple and proceed to the one that needs a bit more effort.

With this ‘headboard’ scatter cushions were used, you can choose any colour that suits the colour scheme of your bedroom or those that will create a contrast.

What you need:

Hooks (quantity is determined by the size of the bed and cushions)

What to do:

Saw on pieces of string to all the ends of your cushions, then measure the distance between the ends of one side and mark on the wall with a pencil and then insert your picture frame hooks (they will not damage the wall and still give great support).  You will need to make 3or 4 rows depending on the size of your cushions and when you are done you can tie the strings to the hooks and you have a new head board or you can vary it like the second picture.

There is a lot of ways to vary this kind of headboards, you can use pictures  and canvases  as done below.
