Don't you love this headboard covered in charming "love bird" wallpaper?    Decorative headboards date back to ancient Egypt.  Still today, a headboard completes a bedroom and adds to the personality of our rooms.  Here's some fresh, quirky and inexpensive ways to make our beds look great.

I see ratan headboards at thrift stores and garage sales all the time.  Who knew one could be sprayed a gorgeous color only to become a focal point of a bedroom?

Another thrift store find is a vintage headboard - look how great this one looks with wood stripped of its dark varnish and upholstered in simple linen.

A stencil or free form paint job is a quick way to add drama in a guest room.

A headboard can be a simple as tacking a woven rug to the wall.  Joss & Main has a similar jute rug for $52.00

A glamorous green velvet oversize headboard.
Around here, headboards have been done on the cheap.  An old white
matelasse bedspread covers a length of plywood (overstuffed with foam and batting).
In our principle bedroom, another "homemade" headboard came from a 4'x8' sheet of plywood.  Home Depot cut the length for me and then P and I padded with foam and batting.  It's covered with velvet damask fabric from Berkeley's Discount Fabrics.  When I'm tired of this, I'll make a slipcover in another fabric.
Hope you got a bit inspired and look forward to hearing about your own headboard ideas.  With so many affordable options, don't all beds deserve a headboard?
