Home Decorating Ideas : How to Create a Faux Headboard


Hi, I’m Ann Myrick, and today I’m going to
show you how to create a faux head board. This is my sons bed, and it doesn’t have a
head board. And a lot of times it’s nice not to have a head board because when you have
a head board and a foot board, it takes up more space. So if you have a small room, it’s
good to do what I’m getting ready to show you. You can use anything, you can use to
make a head board, you can use, if the child is talented, you can get a big canvas and
they can do their own. You can have them create their own head board on a canvas and then
just either screw the canvas in to the wall, or nail it up. You could use, you could really
turn anything in to head board. Taking three identical grate bird cages that are just kind
of plain wooden, and having them right side by side, which make a line. You could use
those. You could use a mirror. You could use a big picture. Today I’m going to show you
two different things. This is kind of a wood ladder, old kind of rustic looking, and you
can toggle bolt it, or just hook it in to the wall, and you can just create. You could
go down low, or up higher, and just create kind of a line that has the feel and look
of a head board. This is cute because you could also get some cute hooks, and the child
can hook things on it. Whether it’s like their Ipod, their phone, pictures, but this can
be fun and used also. And then I, another example is this old shutter, and I’ve used
shutters a lot like this. Let’s see, I’m going to hold this one up because it’s a little
bit rickety, but then you can put saw blade hooks on the back of this, on each end, and
then put it just on a nail, or you could actually toggle bolt it or screw it in to the wall.
So this creates another look of a head board, and again, you can go as low or as high as
you want. Other things you can use is, you could get a bullitean board and put it going
horizontal, and then get a piece of fabric and just glue the fabric on it, and then you
can change it out. So there’s many ways to work with a faux head board. This is Ann Myrick.
