Thinking of doing some redecorating in your bedroom? Maybe you want a fresh new look for spring. A new headboard is a great place to start! If you’re wanting some inspiration, you’ll need to check out the great ideas at HGTV. They have 12 wonderfully creative headboards…made with everything from old salvaged doors and window shutters to vintage metal gates (like the door and gate shown in the photo above). I love how these rustic objects are upcycled and transformed into very appealing and unique looks for the bedroom. Even if you don’t need a new headboard, many of these ideas could add interest to other walls in your bedroom or different rooms in your home.
I thought I’d share some of my favorite ideas from the site here, and you can visit HGTV.com to see the others! (All photos shown are from HGTV.com).
I love old shutters and never realized how great they look as a headboard! The letters perched on top are a fun, whimsical touch, too! Shutters also look great in other rooms–they add interest and texture to a bare wall. And you can hang framed pictures or photos on them, or even bunches of dried flowers, for a homey cottage look.
I’m such a Shabby Chic fan…I love the look of these rustic doors as headboards, and I love all the white! The chandelier looks wonderful in this room, too…it completes the look so well. Such a dreamy combination of rustic and elegant!
The photo above shows another salvaged door upcycled as a headboard. The style of this door reminds me of an antique mantel–I think a mantel would work great as a headboard, too! I love the vintage mirror hanging above the headboard and the vases displayed on the ledge. The room feels so cozy!
Hope this gives you some inspiration for decorating in your own home! Do you have ideas of your own for upcycling some worn but wonderful treasures?
I love all those ideas Nancy! Pretty creative stuff!
Thanks, Tammy! 🙂
great post; very inspiring. I think I’ll go home and burn my headboard so I can get an old one. 🙂
If you ever decide to create your own headboard, I know it will be really awesome! 🙂
