20+ DIY Headboard Ideas

Headboards have been on my brain lately.  I already have one for our master bedroom and I made Elli one for her little twin sized bed.  I’d really like to make one for Connor and for the guest room.  Meh, Chloe doesn’t really need one, as she’s still in the nursery…..but soon.

 

But I love how they look……and they really don’t have to cost a lot.  I mean, you CAN spend a fortune if that’s how you roll, but I kinda like for things to look like they may have cost some money…..but ha, they don’t!

 

As I was browsing around online, I found really clever and unique ideas.  In case you’re on the same hunt, maybe these will help inspire you…  (And if you come across any others you love, leave me the link in the comment section.  I’d love to see more!)

 

 

So many ideas to choose from:

    Fence headboard – get a piece of fence wide enough for the bed, decorate
    it, and mount it on the wall. Fencing can be purchased at a fence supplier or
    Home Depot. A white picket fence headboard is very pretty. I am thinking
    of doing a pink picket fence headboard for my little girl.

    There are really some great ideas here!

    I’m definitely wanting to make a headboard and have found two tufted (or pin tucked) headboard tutorials using pegboard, which looks so much easier than having to drill holes through wood or mdf. Since I have a pin tuck duvet and pillow shams, I don’t intend to add buttons.

    I have been wanting to make some headboards, too. I have been married 13 years and have never had a headboard. Maybe this year!
