SO COOL! Someone wrote, "this has gotta be the 10th DIY headboard i've pinned (guilt for a project never attempted?); but this is by far the easiest one i've seen... and i love YHL, it's such a cute blog and their DIY projects are really practical (and gorgeous!)"
Tin Charm ~ This bedroom brings together the best of the old and the new. This standout headboard is fashioned from distressed white tin ceiling tiles. The antique look is contrasted by bright green and pinks that act as accent colors throughout the room, creating a charmingly eclectic look.
I like this DIY headboard. Easy to have the board cut to the right size at Home Depot, almost as easy to cover as the kitchen chairs. Wouldn't even have to mount it to the frame, could just mount some D-rings to the back and hang it from the wall on either side of the window like a picture frame.
From HGTV's 2012 Green Home- a series of raffia-upholstered squares stands in place of a traditional headboard- just wrap the squares, attach them to each other and mount directly on the wall
