An even bigger time-saver? Paint the outline of the headboard and let the wall color underneath fill in the middle! Below (right) a brown border gets the job done. In fact the headboard is actually a decal another option for achieving the stencil look without having to buy painting supplies.
Some steal the show with sheer creativity and others make a statement with suave – but all of them manage to perfectly complete the bedroom they sit in.
Floor-to-ceiling headboards obviously draw more attention than their petite cousins and often create an imposing backdrop for your elegant rustic bedroom. You can even use this wooden frame to display some homemade DIY wall art or embellish it to match the style and contours of the cool nightstand.
Much like in the case of most other accent features and smart highlights it is the neutral contemporary bedroom that brings the very best out of the live-edge headboard. Thanks to both the unassuming backdrop and lack of other dramatic additions these refined bedrooms allow the headboard to make a great impression and turn the bed into the focal point of the room.
There are times when simple equals modern and this project takes chic simplicity to a new level. To make your own plywood headboard take a trip to the local home supply store and purchase a few simple items: one large sheet of plywood sandpaper stain and sealer. Yes it’s that easy! When you’ve sanded stained and sealed your headboard set it behind the bed and enjoy the earthy statement it creates.
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills) then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue.
