Headboard: 6 ideas to create one yourself

1. A wooden board

Sometimes it takes just a little to give a new perspective to the decoration of a room. In this room, a simple wooden board serves as the headboard. It only takes a few seconds, it costs nothing if we put on the recovery and it makes all the difference!

2. Wood branches

For a room with a natural spirit, we obviously put… on natural materials! Here, in addition to a plywood board affixed to the wall, branches fly over the headboard. We can customize them by hanging a plant, photos or even by wrapping a light garland all around.

3. A macrame

Lovers of bohemian atmospheres, macramé is for you! You will only need a wooden stick and a little rope to make the model of your dreams. Take inspiration from the many tutorials on the web to get started. Complete with hanging plants and decorate your bed with embroidered cushions for the most successful result.

4. Wallpaper

Here is a tip to enhance a headboard without much effort! The idea is to stick a colored or patterned wallpaper let on the back wall of the room. The rest of the walls remain white to accentuate the contrasts. We love the trompe l'oeil effect of this model imitating the raw concrete that we imagine perfectly in an interior loft spirit.

5. Pallets

We never tire of the transformative power of pallets! Placed at the head of the bed, they have nothing to envy to the models of head of bed sold on the market. Remember to sand them properly and varnish them to avoid splinters! On the same principle, you can use the boards of an old box spring or even an old door or the rest of a shutter!

6. Masking tape

Do you like geometric patterns? Treat yourself to a graphic headboard with masking tape! You will be amazed to see all the shapes that can be created with simple adhesive rolls. Triangles, mountains, building shapes, writing, origami animals or even a world map… Let your imagination run wild!

7. Colorful boards
