This last upholstered headboard project has a twist–the fabric and batting are placed inside of two shutter frames! Using metallic paint on the wood and striking fabric for the middle gives the headboard a contemporary feel. User-friendly supplies like a staple gun and hot glue keep the process simple.
If you can, consider using a wardrobe unit with large sliding doors to continue the contemporary theme. Mirrored doors are a good idea if you’re restricted in terms of space – they’ll make the room seem much bigger. And resist the urge to add too many accessories to the room. If you take your time and pick out one or two statement pieces, this will have more impact than cluttering up your space with a number of items.
Wall Decals – If a mural feels too permanent, or you’re living in a rented space, you may want to opt for removable wall decals. These vinyl decorations come in all sizes, shapes, colors and designs. If you can’t find what you need, you can even order them custom made. Then, once your child outgrows the design you can simply remove it in a matter of minutes. Although every parent wants their child to stay small forever, sometimes it’s best to pick options that allow them the room they need to grow.
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.
