DIY: Headboards

August 9, 2018

Little did I know when I started DIY interior design that headboards are one of the easiest things you can do. Yourself.

 

I made my first one for my own bed and wanted a nice clean white to offset against my vibrant blue wall. 

 

All it took was:

-Some plywood, foam, batting, fabric

-Some cheap fake jewels from Michael's

-A staple gun, drill and hot glue

 

And in about an hour I was feeling like I had a very expensive bedroom upgrade for about $100 (honestly the foam is the most expensive thing). 

 

The second headboard was for my guestroom. I had 4 hours until my first guest would arrive - but since I had done it already, and had leftover fabric from the first project, all it took was a quick trip to Home Depot and some sweat equity and I had it done 30 minutes before she arrived! 

 

Here are the images of my finished projects, and a link to a blog post with instructions. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes! I'm hoping to do a rich velvet headboard soon for a client and will post updates here. 

 

Happy DIYing,
