Two DIY Headboard Ideas

Home & Decor

Do-it-yourself headboards can be an easy way to make high-impact, low-cost improvements to bedroom decor. These two ideas are from Singapore's Home & Decor magazine: one's a cushy take on upholstery and the other's an addition of wood moulding to the wall surface behind the bed...

The cushy headboard requires 9 small cushions (or batting-wrapped panels) that are covered in complimentary fabrics. The panels are fixed in a grid at the head of the bed and finished with fabric-covered buttons.

The moulding headboard simply requires a length of wood moulding cut to frame a section of the wall behind your bed. Painted in a contrasting color to the wall, it will pop out as an architectural detail, as pictured. We'd love to give this idea a go but paint the trim the same color as the wall for more subtlety.
