headboard - UPDATED.

i've been debating about a head board for our bed for a long time...
and i keep coming to the same conclusion.
i should just make it.

we have a king size bed.
it's a big task, but i've made up my mind.
i'll be working on it when the weather warms up a bit...
i figure the garage is probably the best place to take this project on.

here's my inspiration:

{mad men, of course}

i'm in LOVE with this headboard.
every time i think about it,
i know it's the right choice.

and for those of you who'd also like to consider making your own headboard,
here's an excellent video to show you how to get it done.

happy headboard making!


*just an update to make your headboard making a little easier. i found a template of different headboard shapes!

I love that headboard! Aside from handsome Mr. Draper, it's what I look forward to most when they show bedroom scenes!

I sort of wish I would have gone the DIY headboard route - we took the easy road and bought one from RC Willey... I love it, and it's fairly unique, but it isn't something that totally has our touch to it if you know what I mean :)

Good luck! Can't wait to see how it goes!

for now said...

can I too? puhlease? thanks.

I love myself a homemade headboard. I made one for my guest bedroom a few years back and I loved how it turned out. So easy, yet so fashionable. Can't wait to see your final product.
