Headboard Heaven

At some point I'd like to make a headboard for our bed. I love the elegance and sophistication of a tufted headboard...


On the other hand I also love the casual look of a rustic wood headboard like these first two made of old doors...



{The Daily Bed}

So what do you think? Our room in a blank slate right now so the possibilities are endless. Our budget however is not. Which is why I hope to make our future headboard. Can I handle upholstering and tufting my own? Will I find the perfect wood piece at a thrift store?

I love the second one made of old doors, so rustic!!
I made one for our guest room, super easy and cheap! :)

I love the way the last three photos really have headboards that are outside of what's normally done. They're beautiful. And really do anchor the room. Someday...

I love the tufted headboard look. I am also trying to get motivated to make my own headboard. I love the door idea but the tufted headboard always wins me over! Can't wait to see what you decide on.

You can have both.
That middle pick are a pair of leather upholstered doors.

You could make up your own version.

I want a new headboard as well. I have been eyeing a few at potterybarn that I would love to get. If I had more room and was crafty I would attempt to make one but I dont see that happening any time soon.

I really like tufted headboards too. You might check out Ballard Designs, they have affordable pieces like these.

Stace - send me a picture of it!

Teri - so true I didn't even catch that. Very interesting idea...

Happenstance - thanks! I'll look into :)
