My 10-year-old grandson who is hovering over my shoulder as I write this has tasked me with re-creating this headboard for his bedroom. And can you blame him? If your youngster feels the same and you want to accomplish this really bomb-diggity look on a budget haunt your local thrift stores and garage sales. But if your budget allows take a look at Skateboards.com where you can find a myriad of colorful and fascinating boards from which to choose. If you have skateboards hanging out in your garage use them. You will add instant history to the room along with eye-catching style.
Headboards are a critical part of bedroom design. They are often the first thing you see when you enter the room and the most dominant. Just as the front door makes an important public statement about who you are the headboard makes an important personal statement about who you are. Consequently it′s a terrific place for letting your creativity soar and your imagination take wing.
Repurposing driftwood into a headboard is the ultimate demonstration of turning found into fabulous. This application is further enhanced by the addition of shells and by the irregular way the boards were applied to the wall. This would be perfect for a beach cottage bedroom or a Shabby Chic–style condo.
When is a headboard not a headboard? When it′s a wall between two windows! This is a marvelous solution in a small room where a more traditional bed can easily prove overwhelming. Wrapping the space in wallpaper makes it feel like a big warm hug but you could accomplish a similarly comfy look by using wallpaper just over the bed. By the way (I am jumping on my soapbox here) wallpaper constantly cycles in and out of fashion. Do not let that dictate whether or not you use it. It is only "out" if you are not a wallpaper person and it is only "in" if you are.
