Headboards are one of the best ways to make an impact in a bedroom. Here at Parish we LOVE a good upholstered headboard – there’s no denying it – so here are a few favorites of mine:
The downside to upholstered headboards is that they are not always the cheapest things to come by. The good news is that there are a lot of ways to create your own headboard without spending a lot of money!
You can make one out of worn wood – just use a jigsaw to create a unique shape on top!
Old wooden shutters add texture and height and they can be painted for an inexpensive pop of color!
You can also use prints to create a focal point on the wall behind the bed like this:
Or you can use an old farm fence like this:
Old doors also add a lot of texture and can be very unique depending on which type of door you choose!
I hope you are inspired by all of these fun ideas! My college bedroom was designed without a lot of money so I made my headboard using a piece of plywood that I cut with a jigsaw into a unique scalloped shape and then painted in a pretty, high-gloss paint - it is always a topic of conversation, so don’t be afraid to get creative!!
