For starters, we chose a great DIY wood headboard idea. In fact, it is a project inspired by the appearance of wood wall coverings. To achieve this, you will need very large tables. These will be attached to the wall behind your bed. One of the advantages of this project is that you can opt for very thick planks.

With the second project of our collection, we continue with the theme of the DIY wood headboard idea that you can do without much effort. This time, it’s about using wooden pallets to decorate your room. As you can imagine, the advantage of this model is that it isn’t expensive at all. Because, as we know, recovered wooden pallets cost nothing.

You must disassemble the pallets before embarking on the construction of the headboard on a wooden platform. For an optimal finish, we also recommend cleaning and polishing the pallets, if necessary. If you want your creation to be more durable, don’t hesitate to apply varnish on the wood before going to the assembly. Alternatively, you can also customize the accessory using paint.

Wood is definitely one of the most popular materials for making original headboards. And for a good reason, because it allows us to make very varied models. We take as proof the next photo that shows us a DIY wooden header idea with a natural frame and rope decoration.

To make this accessory at home, start by building the frame. This should match the size of your bed, or even slightly exceed it. Once the frame is ready, you can focus on the decoration. Use strings in various shades to “draw” a spider’s web. Use nails to drive into the frame to attach the rope to it. Finally, put your creation on the wall behind your bed.

Keep in mind that a more complex version of this project is to wind the rope between the pieces of wood used to make this project. In this way, the use of nails could be avoided.
