diy headboard roundup

May 29, 2013

yesterday i posted a small roundup of beds. but truth is, i’d never buy any of them besides the ikea ones and i don’t know how to transport one from craigslist.

so now i’ve gathered up some favorite headboard and bedframe DIYs. i LOVE the rendition of the ace hotel headboard by the brick house because we watch all our tv and movies in bed so it’d be so comfy for that, but i’d have to do a no-sew version…

one ace hotel inspired headboard by the brick house
two diy tufted headboard by little green notebook
three wood headboard by one young love
four no-sew upholstered headboard by the kid collective
five an ugly ikea fjellse bed turned soooo good by manhattan nest

our bed is on the floor.

see? we got rid of our old bedframe because i didn’t want the cats to hide from us underneath. and while it’s fine having the bed right on the floor, i have been thinking a headboard or bedframe might make the room a little more finished looking.

the usual dilemma, i don’t want to spend any money on it. and beds are expensive! here are a few modern ones low to high. ( ikea is really the only place with cheap beds i could find )

one / two / three / four / five / six

the cats were posing. i had to take a photo.

+ our really damaged blanket is from joinery and unfortunately out of stock. i wanted a new one in a new color since the cats have ruined it. very sad.
