We need a headboard. Currently, our bed is simply a frame. I have looked at many of the DIY versions of headboards but most require you to attach the board to the wall. Our bed is in front of a window. We tried this as I made a headboard using Young House Love’s tutorial (found here). It looks okay but the downfalls are this:
- If you don’t have the nails in the wall at an angle, that sucker will fall on top of you. More than once I rolled over, adjusting my pillows and whabam the whole thing came crashing down.
- It’s pretty plain.
- I’d rather have something prettier.
Michelle, at Three Men and a Lady, suggests using 1×2′ legs and leave your headboard basically wedged between the wall/window and your bed (found here). I’m not a huge fan of either suggestion, but may try the wedging technique.
Here are some of my favorite headboards:

Isn’t the fabric gorgeous?
If I stick with my current square, maybe I could fake some tufting?
Don’t get me started on the dresser.
Adding a piping detail may be easier…
