Simple Style: Paint Yourself a Headboard

A headboard can really be a great focal point for a bedroom, and just because you own a regular ol' bed doesn't mean it can't have a regal backdrop. So if you don't own a headboard, why not try painting one on?

I'm loving this idea from Point Click Home, and it would be very easy to recreate. Simply paint a block of color the width of the bed, and add a small stencil in another shade for a fun bit of detailing. Has anyone tried this at home? If so I'd love to hear about it.

Great idea! I was thinking about picking up some vintage dressers instead of an actual bedroom set for my bedroom and I wondered what I would do about not having a bed. Excellent! It pulls my whole idea together!

This also looks great when you use a crown molding to box off areas and then paint....very easy but a very bold architechural statement.
