For one more modern idea, mount a canvas or two behind the bed to create an artistic headboard alternative. The beauty of this project is the way you can customize color and pattern with the stroke of a brush. In the image below, shades of golden green create a warm glow.
Upholstered headboards bring luxury to the bedroom. The curved outline of this first DIY idea adds elegance, while a bold color choice introduces a vivid palette. Fiberboard, foam board, muslin, decorative fabric and piping give this project its substance, and the finished product reveals a big payoff.
This next headboard features a lattice pattern, although any fabric of choice will do. Add the help of plywood, foam and batting, and the project comes to life. The power is in the headboard’s height, which draws the eye upward, making the room look taller. Don’t forget the nail head trim! Here are two more do-it-yourself headboard projects, each one unique yet similar in the low, rectangular design. The first idea (below, left) shows DIY enthusiasts how to refresh an upholstered headboard with new fabric. The second project (below, right) uses decorative molding to create a picture frame for the outline, then fills in the center with fabric-covered plywood.
There are times when simple equals modern, and this project takes chic simplicity to a new level. To make your own plywood headboard, take a trip to the local home supply store and purchase a few simple items: one large sheet of plywood, sandpaper, stain and sealer. Yes, it’s that easy! When you’ve sanded, stained and sealed your headboard, set it behind the bed and enjoy the earthy statement it creates.
