The Easiest Headboard Ever Contrived

The fabric panel! After seeing these two easy variations of the fabric panel headboard, I'm wondering why I went through school thinking collegiate poverty was incompatible with high personal style at home.

• 1, 2: These headboards were created by simply hanging a fabricpanel from a curtain rod over the bed. Ebay is flooded with designer fabrics in small increments. Depending on the size of your bed, you may not need more than 2-5 yards.
• 3, 4.: These variations were made by stretching fabric over a frame in the same way that you would stretch a painting. You can find all sizes of canvas stretchers at craft stores. For detailed instructions check out Young House Love's DIY headboard (picture 4) here.
