Ever since we bought the mattress, I've been collecting images and plans for do-it-yourself beds and headboards for inspiration. I am looking for something modern and simplistic, partly because that's my taste and partly because that seems like it will be easier than something complex.
I came across this DIY version of a headboard from West Elm on Decor and The Dog. It could be a good option, but if we decide to go with this style, we may make a few adjustments.
Ana-White.com. She builds furniture and shares her projects and plans on her website. Here are few of my favorites from her site.
This reclaimed wood headboard is another of my favorites on her site and it may be easier than building a whole bed.
Here are few more ideas from around the internet.
This could be very easy to DIY. I don't know if I would like it to extend past the bed on each side and would probably use a darker stain.
These are just a few of my favorites. I have a bunch more saved. Hopefully, we'll be able to make a decision quickly and get to it.
