If you don’t own a drill, or even a complete tool box – this is the section for you. There are many diy headboard ideas you can consider. These may not require power sanders, jigsaws or cutting large sections of lumber, but can still offer a wow factor personalized to your home. Refinishing a piece with paint is one of the quickest and easiest ways to restyle furniture and match it to your decor. If paint is not your favorite task, consider covering up an existing headboard with a slipcover you can easily sew. If nothing else, an oversize piece of artwork (well secured) can take the place of a traditional headboard and complete a room.

Within hours this could be the new headboard you want with minimal cutting, stapling, gluing and planning. While the concept is simple- the vast combinations of fabrics, shapes and sizes make these truly unique. Other common ideas include using fence pickets, reclaimed doors or shutters.

The best part of diy headboards is that they can be just about anything you can create to complete a room with a functional conversation piece. The textures, materials, colors and finishes are all up to you.

And now, a quick reminder of safety first. Before starting any diy project, make sure you have a safe space to work in that can handle any fumes from paints or solvents and that you are comfortable using the tools to complete the project. Take care of those eyes with safety goggles, so once you complete this project you can move on to your next diy adventure.
