I’ve had headboard envy for a little while now. Mostly because we don’t have one.
When we got married, we were gifted a Queen sized bed, but have never purchased a bed frame for it. For the last year and a half, we have been sleeping on the box spring and mattress… which is functional, but not that pretty. We want to hold off buying a bed frame, as we are pretty intent on buying a King Sized bed in the near future. (I’m a total bed hog. It will be necessary for the sake of our marriage.)
In the meantime, I’d like to find a solution that looks pretty, but doesn’t break the bank. Here are some of my faves:
…this glorious West Elm upholstered headboard
…this beautiful DIY headboard by Centsational Girl
… this simple Victoria Natural Fabric Headboard
…and of course, the fabulous stenciled headboard by Infarrantly Creative
I don’t think I could do a crazy stenciled fabric, or even anything more than a rectangle (because I don’t know how to use/am afraid of using a saw), but I do think I could something more simple. There are so many DIY tutorials online, that I’m sure I could make something without screwing it up too bad. (Famous last words…)
Whaddya think? Have you made something similar? Any tips?
