Whether your bed frame did not come with a headboard, or you’d prefer one that is more unique, there are many alternatives available. With a little time and creativity, you can create a headboard that perfectly suits you bedroom decor and personal tastes.
Comb you local antique store, flea market or junkyard for antique and/or reclaimed doors. Hang two doors side by side for a uniquely eye-catching headboard. One door hung on its side (lengthwise) can also suffice.
It’s easy to create a simple upholstered headboard that is inexpensive but as rich-looking as you desire. Simply start with a piece of plywood. Cover with cotton batting to create the padding. Then wrap with fabric that matches you decor. Mount the board to you wall and you headboard is complete!
