Have I ever shared that J and I were sleeping in a full bed for almost a year of our marriage? Well, we were, and it was small. Our friends gave us their two-year old queen bed this past weekend since they are moving overseas. And y’all, it’s fantastic. Free bed and extra sleeping room? Yes please! Right now it’s on the floor until we get a bed frame, so it feels like we’re camping… except we’re on 600-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. Which sounds like my kind of camping!
I decided to channel my inner Martha and order a cheap wire bed frame and then create a headboard from some of the DIY inspiration around on Pinterest. Here are a few things I’m considering:
Using old doors as a headboard — vintage and rustic!
I also love the idea of old wood as a backdrop.
Or, I could get an old fireplace mantle to use as a headboard! I saw some the last time I was at Vintage Village.
Below is another wood idea. I love the darker wood with our light blue pillows and white bedding.
Oooor I could find some old shutters to use.
There are so many ideas out there. I promise whatever I decide to create, I’ll post before/after pictures on here. :) Any other cool DIY headboards you’ve seen? Which one do you think I should do?
