We are seeing them everywhere – upholstered headboards. What I like about them is that each headboard has it’s own personality.
When my husband and I switched from queen to king, we upholstered our headboard in ivory linen. But before we did our bed I looked at a gazillion photos. There are so many beautiful upholstered headboards in my opinion. When I was trying to decide which style I wanted I collected a file of all of the headboards I loved.
I have always like the simple white headboard from Brooke Giannetti’s blog Velvet & Linen.
I really, really love these twin beds!
Now how wonderful is this headboard with a single letter monogram – love it!!
Love this tufted headboard – but knew I could not make that one on my own. Oh – I could of I guess. But it would of looked like crap!
Tufted with nail heads – what is not to love??
You can always order from The Pottery Barn if you are not into DIY!!
Another one from Pottery Barn – they have many, many more to choose from.
Of course I love this bed – nice and crisp with monogrammed pillows.
Not sure if I could live with the apple green walls in this room but I do like the shape of the headboard.
The animal print headboard is wonderful but also bedding
This floral headboard makes such a statement especially paired with the colorful curtains. Oh – do not miss the monogrammed lampshades. Oh – those are just too darn cute!
I love this room that Pheobe Howard did.
Well – they did not ask my opinion, but I personally would not care for that yellow shaggy pillow on the bed.
I so love this bed. I love the entire room! Every single detail!
Another room I love not just the headboard – check out that lantern
Here is the shape that I decided on……………very simple.
I looked around the web for tutorials about how to make your own headboard and there are many to choose from. It really was not hard to make.
Your supplies are:
Wood, foam, batting, staple gun and staples, fabric of your choice.
Here is the headboard we made for our master. I really think it would look better if I either tufted it or placed nail heads. I may just continue to think about it and probably never get around to it.
