DIY: Headboards For Kids and Teens

Complete instructions for this hip “big girl” headboard are shared here. Headboard stencil found here. Paint found here.

Using 30 IKEA Malma mirrors, the homeowner created a sophisticated headboard.  Adhesive squares were used to attach the lightweight mirrors to the wall. Image from here.

“Fashion your own graphic headboard with playful and chic stencils. To duplicate this look, cut a curvy headboard from medium density fiberboard (MDF) and paint a base coat. When it’s dry, use a stencil roller to apply a trendy damask design in a cool contrasting color. Continue the theme by stenciling your design on accent pillows, too.” Better Homes and Gardens.  Image from here.

    Any idea where the green flower light fixture is from? Thanks.

  2. Love the soft fresh colors in the 1st one and the funkiness of the orange and white headboard.

    Super cute ideas! We are in the process of changing our 17 yr old's room. She went from boring "sugar cookie" to "pink, black and white". The problem, her pine furniture doesn't match her "new look". What to do? I won't paint it because it was pretty pricey. And teens seem to wanna change their rooms quite often. I do think we can make a headboard to match though. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Yesterday my sister asked help from me. She wants to do a minor makeover for her little girl's room. Instead of buying a new bed, I want to repair it. Hmmm… I guess I'll just need to add a head board for her bed. Can you give me any ideas about head board designs?
