I love beds. Love them.
I especially love bed FRAMES!
In particular, headboards and footboards!
Especially if they are creative and unique.
My dear friend Lauren knows this about me too.
She recently sent me some pics of FAB headboards!
And that got me searching for even MORE fab ideas!
So the next few days are dedicated to headboards -
starting with the lovely old shutters, above. LOVE!
This idea even made me do a double-take!
Old book covers, flattened and attached together,
to resemble and play off the patchwork quilt.
Makes me start thinking of even more ways
books could be incorporated into a headboard!
Now my mind is racing!
I thought this bamboo headboard was great.
I especially love the different height levels.
And it is a good example of another easy project.
I'm not a big bamboo lover, however...
how cool would a headboard out of vintage skis be?
Or colorful skateboard decks? Or used snowboards?
Heart... beating... fast!
Now, that is one huge black headboard/wall!
Well, it's actually a chalkboard!
Okay... I've said before, that I just CAN'T
understand the whole chalkboard paint craze :/
The thought of chalk dust makes me want to sneeze!
But these are nice, shiny vintage chalkboards :)
This headboard idea has become very popular:
The use of old (or even new) DOORS! LOVE IT!
Stained, painted, distressed... so many choices!
You can add moulding (or little side tables, above)
or any creative detail of your choice -
I've even seen screen doors! Endless possibilities!
Brain... on... overload!
Now this "headboard" idea speaks for itself -
useful shelves flanked by antique columns.
This is a unique and creative "non-headboard"...
but it works, and I think it's LOVELY!
I'm going to dream "non-headboards" all week!
Who says you can't add a little humor with style?
I love the simplicity and wit of this headboard,
and that it blends fun with the room's modern decor.
Here, they've used great unique combinations!
The custom-built wall itself is a headboard of sorts -
beautifully decorated with a macro photograph.
Personally, I love large photographs on walls,
and more places are offering those services.
Then your eye floats down to see the actual headboard:
plush, colorful, and comfy buttoned cushions!
I saved my fave for last, cuz it blew my mind!
This bed is obviously not DIY but I had to add it!
Entirely made of a heavy, custom steel frame,
and embellished with gorgeous stained glass...
this is definitely an amazing, one-of-a-kind bed!
I hope you enjoyed seeing these headboard examples,
and that your creativity is flowing with ideas!
MORE awesome examples coming next time!
