The headboard is a major focal point of the bedroom, so you’ll want to make sure yours is fashionable and eye-catching. Vintage or mock vintage headboards are a great way to show off your style. You can even make your own vintage-inspired headboards to save money and show off your personal style. Here are some adorable vintage headboards to inspire your bedroom decor.
Rustic Reclaimed Wood
Distressed wood always looks lovely in the bedroom. It gives it a cozy vibe that makes you feel like you’re relaxing in a log cabin. Blogger Shannon wanted to achieve this look, so she created this headboard using new wood and distressed and stained it herself to give it that vintage look. Although the design is simple, it looks absolutely stunning.
This groovy upholstery headboard is a blast from the past in the best possible way. The print is a nod to the 1970’s, but the elegant shape and hardware keep it from feeling too out of date. Although it looks like it could actually be vintage, blogger Andi actually created this headboard herself. The project may look complex, but you can actually do it on your own in the space of an afternoon.
Cute and Quirky Shutters
Blogger Samantha completely transformed her room by creating this headboard made with painted vintage shutters. The result is something completely unique that is actually quite simple to make. You can paint the shutters any color to match with your existing decor, and you can also use them to display other objects, like Samantha has done with her chalkboard art. The key to making these shutters look truly amazing is keeping the slightly beat-up look that sets them apart.
Wood Chevron Headboard
Monica of East Coast Creative made this beautiful wood headboard that combines vintage and modern influences. The unique chevron pattern is the focus of the entire bedroom, and would pair well with so many different types of beds. The key to making this headboard work is the dark stain and distressed wood. While this headboard does take some carpentry skill to make, the beautiful results are well worth the effort.
