Let’s talk headboards. I love that there are so many different creative options these days. From ornate architectural pieces to reclaimed doors, tailored upholstered pieces to simple wooden pallets – you can use practically anything you want! I like it when people use things that aren’t intended to be used as a headboard… thinking outside of the box is usually a good thing when it comes to personalizing your home decor. It show personality and a glimpse into who you are!

I am a bit all over the place when it comes to my personal preferences here (as is usually the case) – I just like so many of these styles that I find it hard to choose! The headboard I have right now is a vintage ornate carved piece I found at Value Village a few years ago for $20! I love it and I think it was quite the steal. It is painted a glossy black right now, but I am considering changing it to white soon – I can always paint it back!

How about you? Is your headboard a showstopper? Do you prefer the tailored upholstered look, or something more DIY and unique?

Or do you prefer the simple, clean look of no headboard at all, as seen below?
