Stripes make you look smaller, right? Well they can do the same thing for your bedroom. This striped headboard is perfect for creating the illusion of more space. Plus, it’s just really pretty. You’ll need a piece of plywood large enough to act as the headboard and then you just cover with fabric. Keep the fabric in place with adhesive spray so there’s actually no stapling or nailing. You can add batting if you want a softer headboard and then go around the edges with a nail head design or create any design you want. The stripes are really elegant and the entire thing won’t take more than a day to complete.

Diamond Tufted Headboard
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then this headboard is certainly going to be a favorite. It has a nice vintage diamond tufted design that is actually much easier to make than it looks. If you want to bring a little classic elegance to the bedroom, this is certainly a good choice. The batting is actually foam strips so the headboard is really soft and you can use buttons to hold the design in place. The entire thing takes just a couple of hours to complete although it looks like it takes much longer.
