I am a wife, a mother, an auntie and a friend. I love thrifting, garage sales, re-purposing, creating, painting, anything that makes our little rental home more welcoming, comfortable and cozy. I have discovered the "art" of amateur photography & I love the idea of capturing the beauty in the ordinary everyday things that surround us. Blogging is a wonderful way to make new friends and share with people who have the same interests. My personal taste in decorating leans towards "casual cottage/coastal decor". I now have a small shop on etsy, called "SandySeashore" where you'll find some of my vintage finds, my photography and some handmade things. I hope you take the time to check it out! Thanks for droppin' in!

Inspiring Ideas - Headboards

Ah, the bedroom. I personally like a bed dressed in crisp white linens, covered in a multitude of fluffy pillows and decorative cushions...cozy, inviting and luxurious. Bedrooms are for relaxing, reading, sleeping and of course lovemaking....so they absolutely must be comfortable. A headboard is just a little "jewelry" for the bedroom. 
Headboards! So many different styles to choose from, which one suits your decor?

Easy and affordable, decals can be great!

Or, if you're good with a paint brush, paint your own version of these designs.

I personally love these old doors re-purposed into headboards...

I also love recycling, so here are some recycled wood headboards...

I love the patina on this one, the gray-green colors appeal to me.

Old shutters....

Album covers attached to the wall and fronted with plexi-glass. Great idea for a teens room!

A padded headboard made out of a large picture frame.
So pretty for a little girls room.
Give an old shelf a new life!
Very creative!

Inexpensive and a great way to use wallpaper.
A simple upholstered headboard is an easy DIY and also inexpensive to make.
Creative recycling at it's best. Old pallets, who knew?


  1. What great ideas. Have got two pallets at home doing nothing in the garge,so will use them. Thank you

  2. Thanks for the inspiration! Love them.
