I love my bedroom furniture. I purchased the set a decade ago, and it has withstood multiple moves, kittens, puppies and spilled drinks. But sometimes I look at my simple walnut furniture and think it’s so … blah. I would love to pull a Brian Patrick Flynn and makeover the entire set for something that matches my 20-something lifestyle and evolving taste. Something dramatic and over-the-top! Fortunately, Fast Fix Bedrooms provides 12 easy, DIY projects to turn your so-so bedroom into the snazzy retreat you’ve always dreamed of. Here are my four favorite headboard ideas.
If you love your headboard but want to add a powerful pop of color and pattern, fabric draperies can dress up your design in just a few hours. Simply install a drapery rack and attach the panels. Brian Patrick Flynn selected this graphic black and white pattern for a dramatic backdrop that works perfectly with the white headboard and pink accent pillow and lamps.
I’m a sucker for color, especially vibrant greens and blues. No surprise, I love the bright hue of this headboard that, depending on the pillows and linens, translates well to country farmhouse or shabby chic. For less than $100, this easy half-day project is perfect for those new to woodworking.
Have a day off? Add this cottage-style headboard to your to-do list. Made from upcyled, timeworn shutters, this clever headboard idea is also environmentally friendly.
Looking for something classy and contemporary? A upholstered headboard with nailhead trim might be the right look for you. With so many fabrics, designs and colors to choose from, you’re sure to find the one that suits your style to a T. It will likely take a weekend to complete, but imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel every time you enter your bedroom.
