Ultimate Guide to Bedroom Decorating and Design
If your bedroom feels a little lackluster, don't despair. Instead, think about a headboard update.
Pretty in Upholstery
Upholstered headboards are quite the rage because they're attractive and comfortable.
You can create a custom look without the high cost. The one shown here is made of plywood and 2 x 4s, then covered with foam rubber and fabric. For a special touch, a large monogram adorns the center. Do-it-yourselfers and sewers can accomplish this project on their own.
The shape and height of the board can vary to suit many styles. When deciding on the height, consider the size of decorative pillows as well as the distance from the ceiling. Many fabrics will work, but avoid ones that are too flimsy or delicate. We chose a medium-weight linen. Other affordable options include cotton duck, denim, and matelassé. Once again, we used swing-arm lamps on either side of the headboard. They're the perfect choice for a tight space.
