Get the Rustic Look: The Wooden Headboard

Wooden headboards are hitting the interior playing ground hard! They are very cost effective when they are reused from old furniture at home, and they tend to last a very long time! They can create both modern and rustic looks for a variety of bedroom spaces. Today, we have a few simple, natural-looking headboard ideas that can be implemented at home with much ease. All the items you will need you pick up from your local Home Depot, or you might even have the items available at home already!



Have any old window frames you’re dying to throw out?! Well, think again! Old window frames can be reused and upcycled into a number of different decorative items for your home. Like this project, for instance! If you don’t have any old window frames available, you can just pick up some wood planks while at Home Depot or a sister store. You can start by painting the frames to your desired color, sanding them down, or leaving them as is if you’d like. This is going to be your headboard, so decorate it however your little heart pleases. Depending on how long the frames are, you can either attach them to the base of your bed, screw them into the wall above your bed, or simply lean them against the wall temporarily to see if you’re comfortable with the design.



Why not add a branch to your headboard? Decorate a wooden branch with hanging florals that make the headboard look unique and colorful. It’s the perfect way to add a little bit of color and vibrancy to your space through the use of beautiful additives! If you already have a tall headboard, you can screw open hooks into it to hold the branch upright. You can then either make your own floral strings, or find a few at your local craft store, and tie them around the branch to dangle.



Make it your own. We don’t have a structured list of steps, but if you want a few hints, nail a long wooden plank on the black to hold everything together, use stencils or tracing paper if you want to put a design on it, and it looks best if you build a matching bed frame. 🙂
