After posting about my new guest room headboard last week, I found some additional ideas for DIY headboards. My brother and sister-in-law made the below headboard in their guestroom. It goes almost all the way up to the ceiling to give the feeling of additional ceiling height. I love that they can change out the wreath, and the red is a great accent color.
Here are a few other great DIY headboard ideas. I think this wallpaper headboard is really interesting although I would have considered framing it.
A super easy alternative headboard is a stencil painted on the wall. Here's a great example with only minimally contrasting paint. A great idea for apartment dwellers who don't want to mount a heavy piece on the wall.
I hope these give you a few more ideas of how to dress up your bed or guest bed!
