Diy headboard ideas with wood
If you love books or own a passion for reading, this headboard is a amazing thought and extremely unique. You’ll need a lot of books, so I propose looking at thrift stores or garage sales for around .50 to $1.00 a piece. You’ll need to make certain these hardcover books are the same size or as shut as you can get so the layout is easier.
Measure them up, attach the books to the plywood with some nails and enjoy your new headboard! This gives the illusion that the books are just floating there and not attached to anything. Beautiful cool, huh?
Wrought Iron Pieces
You can purchase wrought iron headboards, but did you know that you can use your own wrought iron findings to make one yourself for a cheaper price? You can pick up wrought iron fencing, 2×4’s, and some nails to make your own creation. I don’t propose leaving the rust on it if there’s any, but maybe clean it up and spray it with some protectant.
You can also spray paint whatever color you desire to match the decor of your room.
This is a extremely lengthy project and requires some sewing skills, which I don’t own, so this is project won’t be one for my future. But if it’s for you, you’re going to need a few materials which includes whatever fabric you desire. You can make this headboard as fancy or as modern as you please.
It is rather time consuming, but in the finish, you’ll own an absolutely beautiful upholstered headboard made from plywood, fabric, and a few other odds and ends.
Classy Faux Tiles
This headboard has a extremely classy glance to it and there are tons of options available if you aren’t a fan of the white.
This design is also extremely simple to do yourself. Every you need are some foam faux tiles, scotch mounting tape, and whatever color paint you desire. This is a super quick project and an awesome way to create a unique headboard of any color.
Antique Window Headboard
The next time you see somebody throwing out a couple of matching windows, don’t hesitate to grab them if you’re looking for an simple project for your home. Windows make grand headboards for your bedroom. You can use a tape measure, level, and screws to make certain the windows are level and hung where you desire them, ensuring they are secured to the wall so not to drop on your head.
It’s a super vintage look!
Manila Rope Headboard
Got an ancient door lying around that just isn’t serving any purpose in your home anymore? I love what these guys did with theirs and the manila rope. Every they used was some boiling glue and this rope to make a beautiful country style headboard.
They cut their pieces to fit around the door and glued the pieces to the back of it and secured some stubborn pieces with Gorilla Glue and duct tape. After they were done, they secured it to the wall and voila!
I’ve seen headboards and I’ve seen canopies, but I’ve never seen both at the same time.
This unique project combines the two, making a beautiful backdrop for your bed. Every you need are some adjustable curtain rods, ceiling mounted curtain brackets, anchors and screws, and the fabric pattern of your choosing. To create the canopy glance, it takes a little bit of sewing, so I guess it’s another project I won’t be doing, but maybe you’ll own better luck!
