7 Stylish Headboard Ideas

#1. Scavenge antique stores, thrift shops, Craigslist, and your grandma's attic for an old folding screen. Sand it and paint it in a lovely color that matches your decor. Hang it horizontally (like above) or vertically for some height. If you can't attach it to the bed or screw it into the wall, opt for heavy duty velcro or command adhesive products to secure it.

#2. Paint two same-sized slabs of wood or cover them in fabric. Secure to the wall with some heavy duty velcro or command adhesive. Push your bed up against them in the corner for a sleek, simple corner headboard.

#3. This headboard is actually a garden gate purchased from Lowe's. Hit up stores like Lowe's, Home Depot, and Menards for similar gates. Or see if there's some old fence pieces in the garage you could sand down, paint up, and re-purpose.

#4. Elaine, who I also featured in this post, diy'ed this headboard. Her dad cut a piece of foam board with a jigsaw. She painted it, glued on a monogram, attached it to the wall, and added flowers from Hobby Lobby as the perfect touch.

#5. Forgo a headboard altogether and hang wallpaper behind the bed as a backdrop. If you live in a dorm or campus apartment, you're most likely not able to glue wallpaper to the walls. Don't despair! Just check out this recent post about hanging wallpaper in your dorm.

#6. Here's another chance to go without a headboard. Place your bed underneath the window and dress the window with pretty curtains like these ones by Tord Boontje.

#7. Hang a lovely dress over your bed for a unique, feminine statement. She used her wedding dress and chose white and muted shades of beige and yellow. But this could also work with bright pops of color like a hot pink party dress or sexy little red number. ;)
