A wall mural or painting can be a great headboard. If you're wanting a softer more padded effect, paint or print your art on a large canvas, mount it to a frame and pad the backside for a custom, upholstered art headboard. Use a collection of smaller art store canvases to create an artsy gallery headboard wall. Paint them in a semi or high-gloss, bold color for a contemporary look, like the bedroom shown below. You could also used recycled cardboard boxes if pre-stretched canvases are expensive. Paint the sides in a contrasting color to add dimension.
Once you've decided on the feeling that you want from your headboard, take an honest look at your budget, time and comfort level with DIY projects. Then peruse our photo gallery for some inspiration, and make the headboard you've been dreaming about. This is probably the first thing you think of when you think DIY headboards. Pallets, doors, shutters, window frames, fireplace mantels and barn wood all make excellent backdrops for your bed, and the versatility that wood offers for your bedroom is practically endless.
For a modern bedroom that highlights your bedding, tie in your accent color theme with your bedroom‘s headboard, a wallpaper wall behind the bed or bold, large wall art.
