Low cost furniture (part III: create your own headboard)

Make yourself the head board of the bed It is one of the simplest DIY tasks in the world of low cost home decoration. In addition to a wide variety of possible headboard types depending on style and budget, many of them are inexpensive and easy to manufacture. In this post I would like to give you several ideas to create your own headboard without having to buy expensive materials.

If your idea is to have a modern and current room, one of the simplest options is paint the headboard of the bed on the wall itself. There are different ways and ideas to carry it out. You can draw it and paint it with paint in the shape of a silhouette, make only the outline, or even buy special vinyls for these cases in which the shape is already made and you just have to stick it to the wall in the area you want in the room, there different models to choose from. We also have the option of painting that wall with chalkboard paint and drawing the headboard with chalk, in this way you can redraw it whenever you want and you are tired of the model you chose, you will only need a cloth to erase and a chalk to make the new model .

If you prefer to have a headboard according to the upholstery of the rest of the room, another idea is to use the same fabric to create it. You can do it in two different ways, placing a pretty curtain rod on the wall of the bed and hanging the fabric you have chosen from it, or create with them large and flat cushions with hooks on one side to hang them from the bed. bar; In this way you will have a soft and very comfortable headboard that is also easy to wash if it gets stained.

These are a few ideas, but a headboard can be made out of just about anything. Screens, old doors, mirrors, cork sheets, etc., you just have to use your imagination and do a little simple DIY.
