Hello everyone! I’ve been trying to come up with a headboard for my daughter’s new bedroom (she got a new bigger mattress). I had been hunting the thrift stores for a headboard and wasn’t finding any in the size I needed so I thought I’d make one for her (like I need another project!). But in the mean time I thought I’d share some of the DIY headboard ideas I came across in case you’re in a similar situation.

This was my favorite idea. Turning a fireplace mantel into a headboard. Although I wouldn’t put anything on the ledge for fear of it falling down! Here’s the tutorial How to Make a Mantel into a Headboard
I also love this headboard that used two old doors vertically. Salvaged door head board from Averie Lane.
This is such a cool idea! Make a headboard from reclaimed wood from Buckets of Burlap.
This is a great idea since it uses a sheet of beadboard. Tutorial at Monamye.
This is just a curtain rod with a quilt. I liked this idea because it’s easy to change out and would seem comfortable if you’re sitting up and reading.
This is using a chain link fence gate as a headboard (don’t know the original source). I thought this was cute and different.
How about just painting a headboard?
I also like this headboard made from shutters because it’s finished off with molding so it’s not just shutters hung behind the bed. Here’s the tutorial – Old Shutters to Headboard.
This is a cute idea and there’s a great tutorial on how to make it at The Deuel Family Blog
Aren’t these all great DIY headboard ideas!
