Creative Headboards

Want to create an interesting, unique & budget saving headboard for your bed?  Here are a few great quick & easy ideas for you to consider. 

Why not use a fireplace mantel as your headboard?  It’s a great look that will be sure to add that special touch in your bedroom – the top of the mantel even becomes a shelf for more storage! You can pick up one of these mantles from your local building supply store, give it a fresh couat of paint – hang it on the wall – decide what feature you would like to put in the mantel space  – either fabric panels or even some great wallpaper and you have a fabulous new & creative headboard.

Large bold wallpaper behind your bed area is a perfect accent for the wall to create drama and interest.  Select your wallpaper – make sure it ties into your rooms colour scheme & decor – hang it and you are done!  


Why not hang wallpaper in frames over the bed? Here you see a mix of wallpaper & colour to add that special touch in the bedroom.  Very easy to accomplish & this idea doesn’t break the bank.


Do you have old stained glass or coloured glass windows that you don’t know what to do with?  Old, interesting architectural pcs that are just sitting in your garage or basement?  Don’t be afraid to bring them into your bedroom for a fresh, interesting accent in your room.


I hope that some of these esay & inexpensive ideas have inspired you to take a look at your”headboard” in a different, yet creative ,way - I am always available to help if you have any decorating dilemmas – colour selection, furniture placement – adding that accessory – any of your questions about decorating and staging.
