DIY Headboards

A headboard can be a beautiful element and add a finished look to your bedroom. If you’re looking to give your bedroom a new look, try making your own! Today the Mansions Woodland Blog brings you some great DIY headboards to try. You can find many of the necessary tools and supplies at your local Home Depot near Conroe, TX.

Pallet Headboard

This is a simple and beautiful headboard to add a rustic touch to your bedroom. This DIY project comes from Rice Designs. You’ll need one or two pallets (depending on their quality), 2x4s, nuts, washers, bolts, screws, stain, polyurethane, and the necessary tools to put everything together. You will need to pull the pallets apart and lay the boards side by side. Sand and stain the wood and put them together using the frame (made of 2x4s) and you’re good to go!

Upholstered Headboard

You’re going to use a pegboard, foam, and fabric to make this classy and simple headboard work. You’re also going to need 2x4s, batting, spray adhesive, buttons, trellis wire, a large picture hanger, and tools. This headboard doesn’t require any sewing; just simply stapling and using the spray adhesive to hold everything together. It’s a beautiful and fun addition to your bedroom set.

Bed Canopy

This DIY project is more of an alternative to a headboard, but it adds the same decorative style. It’s a cozier and more comfortable option, too, than a classic headboard may look or feel. This idea comes from Design Sponge. You’ll need fabric, two curtain rods, curtain hardware brackets, and the necessary tools to hang the brackets. You can be creative with this project by using fabric combinations to match your bedroom.

Room Dividers

Room dividers are perfect to use as a simple and easy headboard. Find a room divider that fits the size of your bed. You can find something from the many different styles, colors, and patterns available to match your room. Find a wooden, bamboo, woven, or canvas material. Get creative and find something that you love.
