6 Unique Headboard Ideas

I have blogged about headboards in the past, yesterday on BAM or SLAM we discussed faux painted headboards and this past July I shared a few of my favorite DIY upholstered headboard tutorials.   However, there are so many unique headboard alternatives floating around, I thought I would share a few more of my favorite unique headboard inspiration ideas today…

Each one featured today is unique, chic and would be easy to DIY.


Which style is your favorite?  What are you currently using as a headboard?

    I love the look of the big map of grouping of pictures behind the bed but it’s so impractical, unless you never sit up in bed. I like the headboards with the lights mounted on them….I want to do something like that in my boys’ rooms. I just recovered our upholstered headboard for the third time!

    I love all of these—the reclaimed wood and map are my favorites. I always swoon over reclaimed wood. Hahaha. Actually, my bed is made from reclaimed wood–and stained. It is huge and I love it!

    I like #2 with the overhead light — I like the style and the colour the headboard but the light overhead for reading would suit me to a “t”. I’ve still got the headboard that came with the bedroom suite and I hate to tell you how old it is. Most definitely time for an up-date!

    I ‘m really drawn to #1 – has great texture, dimension & visual. The headboard that I covet?? has to be a wingback upholstered headboard! I have wanted one for years now and soon I hope to get one when I re-do my master bedroom.

    Is there any way that you can tell me where or what site i can find the Floral Canvas Oil painting, I saw the painting months ago and just found it again on your site. I just love it! Suzanne
