10 Awesome DIY Headboards

When my husband and I moved into our house our bed which has been through 9 years of marriage and 7 moves finally bit the dust.  We were left without a headboard and now just have a lovely set of bed rails holding our mattress in place.  I desperately want to update the look of our bedroom with a fun and stylish headboard.  In searching for ideas I came across some really cute ideas.  These are a few of my favorites.  I still have not decided which one I am going to do…

Making a headboard out of a recycled door is a brilliant idea!  It requires minimal use of power tools which is always a good thing for me and the finished look is so cute.  It’s also a relatively inexpensive project.

I LOVE the look of this headboard.  Painted in bright colors in would be great in a kids room or you could finish it in a darker color for a more sophisticated look.  I also like how this one is distressed.

Similar to the one above, I love the color and distressed look of this headboard.  It kind of reminds me of a beach house and has kind of that breezy easy feeling about it.  Ad some cute throw pillows and you can change the look of an entire room.

This one is great if you are looking for a more formal look.  The shape is beautiful and I love the color and geometric pattern of the fabric.

This one is definitely also in the running as one of my favorites.  I love the size of it and the rectangular shape.  I also think the material they used is adorable.  The yellow and the blue go so well together.

    I really like the cottage style door – but measurements aren’t for a full size bed (every other size is given!)… Would u just use a queen headboard and have it to big for the bed?
