Do you have any creative headboard ideas for me?

I don't have a headboard. I don't want to buy one. I'm looking for creative ideas. I can't put too many holes in the walls because I rent, or else I'd probably do a large shelf. Anyone have any other ideas for me?

  • Big piece of plywood, cover with batting and then cover that with a fabric of your choice (I have used a waffle weave spa looking shower curtain) and staple to the back side of the board. You can put two D ring connectors on each side, run a wire between and hang on a hook or two at the head of the bed.  That's what we did in our guest room.

  • I've seen some cute headboards with fabric panels you create a frame out of 1x4's and use plywood as the support for the fabric squares. Pick out fav fabrics and some batting and put the batting around the plywood square and cover with the fabric place the squares on the frame with screws and then mount with a single strip to the wall the whole inside length of the headboard using anchored screws. Only 3 or 4 screw holes needed.

  • I like DJDNY, but I've also seen picket fences like that! They also make wall stickers as headboards!
