More Creative Headboards


With the increasing need to both save money and create a sanctuary in our homes we are constantly searching for that certain statement piece that will give us the design we crave without the huge price tag. Here are some great examples of those who have done just that.    pb

I love the juxtaposition of the wood wall and the roofing metal headboard at the top of the page. Using tinsnips, the elegant shape was achieved for around $30! Be careful of rough or sharp edges though.

Want a headboard with huge impact? Hang a rug or tapestry. I would think the easieest way to accomplish this would be with using Velcro or Command Strips.

Okay, this one is a little bit of a stretch for me, but if you don’t like the skimpiness of this you could add a couple of pairs of panels for a fuller look.

I love the organic feel of this,but, where to get one? Check your local lumberyard to see if they have random pieces they sell, if so,hang from a cleat hanging system or if large enough, prop on the floor..

I have to admit when I first saw this I thought it was a Darth Vader bed, but quickly realized it is a formal evening dress or ball gown. The effect would be even greater if the dress were a different color than the bedding. Great idea for a young fashionista’s room. Don’t have a ball gown on hand? Search vintage shops or thrift shops like Goodwill.

This headboard began it’s life as an old barn window, then it was painted with frosted paint to reduce the reflective glare. Me personally, I wouldn’t want anything breakable at my head while I am sleeping, however, I think the same look could be obtained by stretching and stapling cloth to the back of a glassless window.

This folding wooden screen is beautiful but not everyone has them at their disposal. Try any folding screen covered in cloth or use simple hinges to connect 3 doors,painted wood, or art canvas together.

I love this simple idea! An oversized poster has been inexpensively framed and hung to serve as a very stylish headboard.

A door and an ornate old gate were used to create this shabby chic headboard. If your the crafty type you could place a light where the existing doorknob is located.

Instant “Loft” is created with these simple wood pallets. Where to find them? Check furniture or glass stores where shipments are often loaded onto pallets for delivery.

  1. My favorite is the corrugated metal cut into a traditional shape. A little bit of bling as well as an industrial feel.
