The Coveted Headboard That's All Over Pinterest
Upholstered headboards continue to dominate home-décor blogs and shelter magazines—adored for the tailored, refined look they lend to even the most basic beds—but what many people don't realize is that they're not so difficult to make, says Kate Riley, the blogger behind Centsational Girl. The build-your-own-nailhead-trim headboard tutorial on her site is one of her most popular projects, probably because it takes just a few hours to build and costs only $70 in materials—a steal compared to the $450 version seen in stores. Riley recommends upholstering the headboard with a neutral color like gray, since it will likely outlive multiple bedspreads.
