Not Your Average Headboards

We've posted some pretty fantastic DIY Headboard Ideas and DIY Bedside Tables this month to really get the creative juices flowing. Well, we've found some more pretty great headboard ideas that would require a little diy to pull off but are a creativity overload! We're really loving the idea of overlapping empty frames above the bed. Drape jewelry over the frames to create a feminine retreat or hang old scarves for a vintage and rustic look. Many of us bring back tapestries and fabrics from our worldly travels and a great way to put them to use (instead of just throwing them in a drawer) is to upholster a headboard in them. That way you have a great story and you can be reminded of that trip each time you enter the room.

One of our favorite not-so-average headboard ideas is the one using large letters. If you're into this look for a kids room you can easily use letters to spell out a name.
