Change the head… the bed!

Change the head… the bed!

To avoid standard models, get started and make it with your little hands! You will give an original and personalized touch to the decor of your room ... without taking the lead. The headboard is the first thing you notice when entering a bedroom. A good reason to pay him special attention. To be sure that it matches your decor and your personality, only one solution: do it yourself. The rod of all desires The rod is ideal for those who often change their minds. Once attached to the wall above the bed, it only remains to dress it: cushions, curtains, sheers ... Let your imagination run wild and do not hesitate to opt for beautiful satin fabrics, quilted and why not faux fur for a wild effect. If you can sew, add pockets to put your bedside book in it. The madness of the stickers Practical and fun, the stickers allow all the madness ... that you dare not. They exist in a special headboard version but you can also choose classic stickers (large flowers, cherry branch, pop art, rosettes…). Take care of the break so that the whole is harmonious and forms a stylish headboard. And if you are not satisfied, start again, they can be repositioned at will. The art of the headboard Do you feel like an artist? So express yourself on a painter's canvas that you will hang above the bed. Choose it the same width as your bed; for the height, it's as you want. You can also hang a series of paintings or framed photos on the wall. Little idea: have your children's photo reproduced on canvas in Pop Art by Andy Warhol style or compose a triptych of original photo frames. Guaranteed effect. Upholstery is chic For a home-style "padded" effect, follow the guide! The material: a plywood plate, foam, fabric, upholstery nails ... and voila. Glue the foam on the plate, then cover with fabrics (staple it behind the plate). Then place the nails and fix to the wall. The advantage: you can choose the fabric according to your tastes and the desired effect: velvet for glamor, faux leather for sophisticated, linen for natural. A bit of exoticism Want a change of scenery and exotic dreams? Opt for the canisse, reed stems assembled with wire and usually used as a windbreaker (to buy in a garden center). The canisse is also available in bamboo, heather, wicker. For a sober and natural decor. Another exotic idea: a colonial style screen unfolded just behind the head of your bed. Do not panic ! If you want an original headboard, without getting into DIY, you can still buy it. We have put together a selection that should not leave you indifferent. There is something for all tastes and budgets, from classic revisited to modern design. Let yourself be inspired!
