I’ve been looking for DIY headboards lately.
I’m finally getting around to re-decorating my guest bedroom. I have to admit, I have been dragging my feet on this one. Not because I don’t care, but because I want a DIY headboard and there are too headboard ideas to choose from.
Being military and moving so much, a guest room is often a bonus in a home. Therefore it has never really been a top priority, but now that we live so close to family, it has become a must do priority.
We have David’s IKEA bed frame from years ago that has held up through out all the moves. It just doesn’t have a headboard, so instead of buying one, we are going to make a headboard for it..
I have been searching all over the internet trying to find tutorials on DIY headboard. David doesn’t know it yet, but it is going to become a weekend DIY home decor project for us to do.
Headboards are often the focal point of a bedroom so therefore I want mine to WOW you when you walk in the room.
Here are my final 3 headboard tutorials that I like and I thought I would share them with you as well.
All things thrifty made a great contemporary fabric headboard and it truly makes a statement when you walk into the room.Like she says, “go big or go home!”
This particular fabric headboard is quite larger than what I would like, but scaling it down would not be hard at all. .
I really like this fabric tufted headboard from Censational girl.
I love the texture of this fabric. And I think the tufted buttons add much class and make this more traditional in style.
I’m thinking this might just be the one!
And the last DIY headboard contender is by Young House Love.
I chose this particular headboard because of the simplicity of the actual headboard, but with the wow factor added with the floral fabric. The fabric you choose will determine what decorating style it will be, but a large bold floral would be perfect.
All 3 of these tutorials for making a fabric headboard are very simple to understand. I don’t think we will have a difficult time trying to make a headboard.
Now I’m really getting inspired to finish that guest room.
Which DIY headboard do you like the best?
