Currently Loving: Upholstered Beds

The other day I realized that my husband and I have never actually bought a bed. (Yes, yes…we have bought a mattress.) It’s just that we received a bed as a family hand-me-down when we got married…almost 15 years ago. Although it has never been trendy, it’s pretty timeless which works just fine for me. But lately I have been thinking about having a headboard custom made. (DO NOT TELL LANCE.) Take a look at some of my favorite headboard inspirations, which add edge to this classic bedroom piece.

It’s not just the fabrics that I love, but the shapes of the headboard! We are DIYers around here. Surely all Lance needs to do this is a jigsaw and a glue gun, right? Just take a look at the detail – the fabrics, the trims, the shapes…there is so much to love about these pictures. I really hope Lance doesn’t read my blog.

What do you think? Have you ever custom upholstered a headboard…or thought about it? I really want to know if it’s something I can DIY! (PS. I would love to help track down any photo sources if you know any of these!)
