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.
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.
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.
Using two shades of the same color when painting a headboard is both unexpected and visually interesting. Below (left), the light green stencil paint makes a monochromatic statement against the pear green wall color. Featured on Simply Seleta, this project takes its inspiration from a Domino magazine image.
