Cheap Headboard ideas for this bedroom? Maybe DIY?

February 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
My room is definitly, "missing something". It's a small downtown condo, so I want to keep clean simple lines, but I also love cottage, country, and shabby chic accents. I fnd the rooms feels too cold, it needs some life!

I'll be replacing the shelf with a side table (that I'll varnish dark grey to match the bed) and a simple lamp.

The colours are mint/seafoam, pink, off white, and grey. I may add accents of neutral beige, and coral, as well.

Any ideas for a CHEAP headboard to bring the bed space together?

I found awhite wicker headboard on craigslist of $50, I could use as is or paint, maybe grey, or silver, or pink or.... ???

Or I thought of just building one in planks and varnishing them dark grey, same as the furniture.

Or any other ideas?

You might stencil one on the wall in silver.

Two items I found on Craigslist: A wicker head board for $50. A mantle for $225 (which is beyond my budget but I could try to negociate...)

Also, this is the night stand I will be varnishing dark grey to match the other furniture, and the lamp to put on top:

Upholster the wicker headboard, layer it with foam, then a reasonable fabric, staple gun works well

I would love to upholster, but to be honest I have very little confidence in my upholstering skills :S lol
