When I started researching headboard ideas, it was amazing how many wonderful ideas there are to choose from! One of the most important bedroom decorating ideas is focusing on the headboard. It is the focal point of your room and the jumping off point for your design style.
I want to show you three headboards I designed, and then a ton of great headboard ideas from different Parade of Homes I visited this past year.
My Three DIY Headboard Ideas
Headboard Made From an Old Door
This is my headboard that my husband and I collaborated on together. I didn’t want my master bedroom furniture to be matchy-matchy. (That is a professional interior designing term.) I found this old door at an antique shop for $20.
I applied the antiquing glaze and rubbed over it with a damp rag. You really want to work the antiquing glaze into every groove to achieve a distressed look. Once dry, I brushed on two coats of matte finish polyurethane.
A Special Headboard for a Special Little Cowboy
My husband and I also collaborated on this creative headboard idea. My client had a little five year old that wanted a cowboy room. I found some old wood at the flea market, and we put this project together in an afternoon.
A Sweet Headboard and Bed Crown Idea
I found this metal shelf on sale for $20. I purchased a tension rod, and two Shabby Chic curtains from Target.
After hanging the metal shelf, I slid the two curtains onto the tension rod and hung the rod inside the shelf. It was so easy, and turned out so sweet!
More Fabulous Headboard Ideas
This was such an adorable idea for a little boy’s room! This was designed by ReFresh Home of Nashville, TN.
If you are looking for ideas on how to make your own headboard, there are tons of DIY designs out there! Enjoy!
