Natural Headboards

Can making your own headboards be easier than this? It seems like of all these headboards were made from unfinished wood. The imperfections make them OH SO PERFECT!

Here are some of my favorites, from my pinterest board, Abode.

Paint positive, inspiring words on your headboard. via

Create a fence like effect with slabs of wood. via

Paint vertical stripes (those actually look like bamboo).

  1. First of all, thanks for visiting The Poet’s Crafts and liking my poem. I do appreciate those who like something I’ve created. Secondly, your site here is really great and in line with the simplicity I enjoy and appreciate a lot in life. I will follow this wonderful site.


  2. I have that on my pinterest list as well! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the look of the “awake my soul” one but I still have to find a place where I can get some old pallets


  3. Clever! I love the look of wood, and having raw wood as a backdrop for a fancy bedroom is a striking contrast. Not fond of the doors, but I really like the picket fence looking one.


  4. Love these ideas! Although raw wood wouldn’t suit my bedroom, these just gave me a few ideas. Also, thanks for visiting my new blog. ๐Ÿ˜€


  5. It is amazing what one can make from ordinary items. Thank you for the like on my post “The Blackberry!” Please come back to visit again!


  6. Nope, I don’t hink I could sleep well with old wood as a headboard. All the pictures look good, but in the last one I’d be worried about sleeping next to old paint. Also, in California we have huge problems with termites. I’d be scared of what could be living inside those boards.


  7. I would! There are many slats of wood I see by dumpsters…hmm could use for my guest suite. My yesterday’s post Marilyn vs Murphy shows our head board, I had to wrap ribbon around it when it was damaged during our delivery! Check it out!


  8. Oh wow… LOVE that idea!!! I was trying to think of ideas for a new headboard… I was just going to make one to match my ikea furniture (like I’m making doors and panels for my built in wardrobes to match the ikea furniture)… but i could go a contrasting colour recycled timber (probably some pine).
    Just lucky I can get my hands on wood so easily ๐Ÿ˜‰
