After seeing the gorgeous upholstered bed Kelly from View Along the Way made, Carissa of Carissa Miss knew it was just what she wanted for her daughter’s bedroom. Carissa modified Kelly’s dimensions to fit a twin-sized bed and got to work building, upholstering, and adding nailhead trim. I love the shape of the headboard for a little girl’s room – it reminds me of a princess’ throne!
Amber, a Knock Off Décor reader without a blog, really wanted a linen headboard for her new king-sized bed. While online prices were of course high, shipping to Canada added another monstrous expense. Amber and her husband decided instead to build their own headboard with deep tufts and nailhead trim and are sharing their steps right here on KOD! Without further ado, I’ll let Amber take it away with the how-to on how she made this beauty!
With three daughters, Jessica from Polkadot Poplars spends lots of time thinking about how to decorate their rooms. For one of her girl’s bedrooms, she worked with her husband to make an upholstered headboard with monogram that’s fit for a princess. It definitely creates a focal point in the room just like Jessica hoped!
Kelly from The Lily Pad Cottage has had the same wood bed for ten years and has painted it twice in an effort to change things up a bit. A wood and fabric bed from Pottery Barn got her wheels turning and inspired Kelly to add upholstered panels to her preexisting headboard and footboard. Although this project turned out to be quite the adventure for Kelly (and her family!), the end results are beeeeautiful!
While looking for a new headboard for her guest bedroom, Brit from House Updated found an upholstered headboard from West Elm that she loved. The clean lines and nailhead trim appealed to Brit’s design taste and had just the right amount of interest. But, best of all, it was nice and tall, which would make the bed a real showpiece in the room. Brit decided to build her own version, making it even taller and super soft by upholstering it with a velvet curtain from IKEA.
Laura from The Steen Style has been hard at work decorating her master bedroom for the past three years. While she really wanted an over-sized, tufted headboard, she certainly didn’t want to spend bahoodles of dollars on one. Instead, Laura took on the bear of a project with the help of her fearless mom. Here’s what Laura has to say: “The size made this project intimidating,but once we were finished, it was well worth the time…and definitely the money saved!”
Amy from Amy’s Casablanca created this gorgeous upholstered headboard with nailhead trim for her guest bedroom in just an hours time and for under $100. While I love the neutral fabric Amy chose, you could really make a statement in a room with a colored fabric and that eye-catching Greek-key nailhead pattern.
After longing for a wingback bed, Gina from Lady Goats decided to make the dream a reality. Gina asked Ana White to whip up some plans, and she, of course, didn’t disappoint with an amazingly easy-to-build design.
