I’m simply amazed at other people’s creativity. Taking something ‘old’ that I usually see as ‘junk’ and making something so beautiful and useful with it. My mom has this gift, and I admire it. I keep hoping some of her ‘knack’ will rub off on me, but for now I will just ‘borrow’ hers and others ideas for ‘upcycling’ the old! Check out some of these neat headboards!
How about this old door turned headboard? You can see the entire process from start to finish at this at Infarrantly Creative.
And this one with a few old boards and a little bit of paint…so cute from Tiny Prints!
Who knew wood pallets could be so beautiful? And to think I just tore all mine up and burned them in the fire pit! This picture comes from So Laura blog.
Check out this gate headboard I found at Urban Country Style!
Wouldn’t this headboard made from shutters look perfect in a beach house? Found at Completely Costal.
Look at these cute fence pieces turned into headboards that I came across on pinterest.com!
And last, but not least, these might be my favorite! I found both these inspirational photos on pinterest.com. Old fireplace mantles turned into a headboards…
And to think I spent the first 15 years of my married life with NO Headboard! And to think I finally bought a headboard 2 years ago! Can’t believe I settled for a store bought one, when I could have had one of these oh so creative ones! Which one is your favorite?
