Inspiration Monday: Unique Headboards

I’m totally digging some non-traditional headboards lately. So much so, that I’m thinking about making one for our bed. Right now we are using an upholstered headboard that I made when we had a queen size bed. Since upgrading to a king, I just haven’t gotten around to changing out the headboard. It still works with our space, it’s just a wee bit small.

When it comes to materials, it seems like just about anything goes these days-which is totally fine by me. Check out this awesome mantle-turned-headboard:

I also love this old door headboard:

Do any of you guys have a unique headboard that you DIYed? Would you attempt any of these?

  1. I love them all!!! I’d be a bit afraid of splinters from the pallet to be honest, even though it is beautiful! Those are all so lovely! I recently made a cal king stenciled headboard from scratch, although it is a bit more traditional I live it so much that I don’t want to get out of bed! :)

  4. Ooh, I love all of them! I think my favorites are the mantel and the shutters. I’ve never seen anything like the mantel, I guess it just never occurred to me to use that as a headboard, I love it!
