DIY Headboard Project by Brooke....

Here's a great tutorial for those of you looking to make a really cool HEADBOARD that makes a statement! Brooke of the All Things Thrifty Blog did just that for her master bedroom!  I was so IMPRESSED by the look of this that I had to share it with all of you! For those of you thinking of giving this a shot, remember...  you can choose any fabric you like and make it even larger as well!  For ALL the step-by-step instructions check out her blog here.


What do you think? Is this something you could see yourself tackling as a DIY project??

wow! this headboard is amazing! At first seems too complicated for a DIY, but actually it's always like this! In fact it's so easy, I'd give it a try and hope I'll not turn everything into a big mess :)

I need to do this! We are getting a king sized bed and don't have a headboard.

I think this is one DYI that I could actually do....

I have an online store with vintage and designer fashions - $30 and under. Let me know what you think....

Ok, so this is pretty cool. Thanks for posting, Jen!

designstiles said...

I love how she used different patterns but kept the same color scheme. The end result looks fantastic.

alison (semi-fab lane) said...

i might just do this! thanks for posting about it-i have never seen this and it is truly stunning. if i end up tackling this project i'll let you know-it will probably be more of a modern take on the original. yay!

Glamour Bbey. said...

Hay dear blogger!
How are you? I'm glad that I've visited this blog! She's lovely.

Please, check mine too & maybe we can follow eachother!
Love, Cindy.

Unfortunately I can't picture myself doing it - thought I wish I could! Looks gorgeous. I have a platform bed that looks similar, without the pattern...this would be a great way for someone to spice up a plain mattress! xxSAS

purple area said...

Great idea, lovely headboard, I bet it wouldn't look that good if I tried to put it together.

I'm Lindsey Lou! said...

Oh wow, that turned out great. Love her bed too.

Jen of Made By Girl said...

SARAH FROM 20 SOMETHINGCUPCAKES:
I know what you mean....I would love to do this, but it would have to be a DAY where I don't have much to do. It will take time, but I bet it would be worth it. :))))

Great idea!

Aspen Lane Designs said...

So creative! It looks amazing!

Alexandra said...

Simply adore the headboard with the contrast of yellow. Definitely a DYI, if only I could figure out how to do it! Love!

Wow! Beautiful.

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

this turned out amazing! i'm definitely going to check out the tutorial and see if it's a project i could handle! thanks for sharing :)

BeeHive said...

This is on my to-do list, but the list is soooo long that I have no idea when I'll get around to it. We just finished renovating our sunporch into an office so maybe I'll move this to the top of the to-do list ;)

belinda graham said...

awesome! makes my safety-pin-behind-the-headboard job even more dodgy than i first thought!! xx

Adventures in Dressmaking said...

Looks like fun! I would totally try this. When I did mine I needed way more tools, and my dad's help... http://adventuresindressmaking.blogspot.com/2010/05/beeswax-candles.html

Caitlin said...

This is gorgeous and totally has been added into my "inspiration file". I absolutely adore it!

Thanks for sharing!
