Favorite Headboards

I have always had a love affair with tufted headboards.  Really, anything tufted just makes my heart skip.  As I was looking around for one, I decided to take on a not-so-little diy project.  In the end it was totally worth it!  Coming in at about $150, I saved myself quite a bit on my king size tufted headboard.

I love the finished product and hope you get inspired to make one of your own.  Here are some good headboards that I considered replicating.  I love the tufting, but then leaned toward a nailhead trim on a simple curvy shape, then went to a slip-covered design, and then back to tufting.  Enjoy!

I used a great tutorial from the Little Green Notebook when I made mine.  She has some great tips...like using PEG BOARD!  I wish I had thought of that before buying my heavy mdf.  The holes are drilled and it's light-weight.  

Here's my pinterest bedroom board if you're interested.  I know it was false advertisement to tell you about the one I made.  I promise it's coming up...
