I’ve been checking out some ideas to re-do our headboard at home and was impressed with the DIY designs out there, There are some really clever ideas that I just had to share.

I’m yet to decide which way to go especially with so many options, have a look, which one do you like the most?

The Barn Door

This headboard is proud and prominent, I love the rustic feel.

If it’s a chunky design you’re after this could just be it.
