Around here a couple of our favorite words are diy & upcycle! It’s amazing what beautiful things you can make out of what other people call junk! Headboards are among the most popular and easy things to create! They allow you to refresh the whole room and let your character and personality shine! You can literally make a headboard out of just about anything! We were scrolling through the Hometalk website today and found some fabulous examples we wanted to share with all of you!
You know how we feel about old windows! Instant character and charm! Perfectly chippy paint and all! Such a simple headboard with major impact!

Did you ever think about using tin? The shape this headboard is cut into just adds so much! We think a little rust would just make this perfect!

We just love the originality of this custom headboard. What little girl or boy wouldn’t love their own name carved in a tree above their bed? There is even a tutorial for this one HERE!

Reclaimed wood and pallets! Of course two of the best things to get cheap or free and add instant charm and character!
Donna of Funky Junk Interiors made excellent use of an old horse gate spare – how outdoorsey is that!
How about a chalkboard headboard? How versatile would this be? Quotes, scrolls and pretty doodles?
Just paint the wall behind the bed with chalkboard paint and you are good to go!
