DIY Headboards from HGTV Readers

Take a note from these HGTV fans and dress up your bed with a custom headboard. Your wallet will thank you.

Certain pieces of furniture are easier to DIY than others. When it comes to headboards though, the possibilities are endless. You can literally attach almost anything to the wall behind a bed, and voila! Headboard magic. So why spend big money on a costly piece when you can easily (and cheaply) create a headboard to your exact specifications? These Instagrammers did just that!

This headboard went from brown and dated to rustic and shabby-chic thanks to a simple coat of whitewash from @oliveandhue. We love how it pairs with the tufted bed linens.

Tufted headboards are classic and cozy. They can also be expensive. This DIY version from @mozzy_rs looks like a million bucks! Want to make your own? We’ll show you how. Bonus points if you have an orange tabby to pose in your Instagram shot.

The gals from Classy Clutter detailed this entire amazing room transformation on their blog. We can’t decide what we like more, the statement wall with shimmery gold flowers or the headboards she designed and made with a hand-drawn butcher paper stencil (!!). Okay, okay, we love it all.

Talk about a focal point. With a statement piece like this, you can skip the art above the bed. Instagrammer @paigebattinelli’s headboard gives this entire space a modern high-end-hotel vibe. We’re ready to check in.
