5 More DIY Headboards

Dress up a salvaged chain-link gate with a blanket or quilt.

Buy some cheap plywood from your
local home improvement store.
Sand, stain, and seal it. You'll have
a sleek, modern headboard.

Do your most brilliant ideas hit you right
as your head hits the pillow? Or do you
have some crazy dreams that you wake
up and want to remember? Using a chalk-
board as a headboard is your solution.

Old doors can be found at thrift stores, flea
markets, and architectural salvage shops.
And they make for some gorgeous headboards.

For instructions to create this
beautiful, glowing headboard... click here.

  1. I just found your blog and wanted to say that I really like it! :) Cute headboards, too--I like the chalkboard one and the last one the best. Who knows, maybe I'll actually get around to doing one of them sometime.

    The last headboard (glowing headboard) says for instructions click 'here', but it doesn't take you to instructions, just to bhg website and when I search for the glowing headboard I can't find it. Can you tell me a different way to find it????
