DIY: Simple Headboard Ideas

These interesting DIY headboards have us on the hunt for unique ways to add dimension and character to our beds. Fun and simple design ideas for a great project and good night’s sleep!

Above and below: We’ve always been fans of adding a fresh coat of paint to uplift a room, so naturally we love the idea to color your own headboard space. As seen in Alexandra Angle’s design portfolio, this is a quick and affordable DIY project.

Above: Discovered on Hus & Hem, we love the use of vintage doors as a headboard in this Scandinavian bedroom; an innovative way to salvage some old pieces.

Above: Find an old (or new) piece of wood and affix it to the wall behind your bed.
