Trend Alert : Rescued Headboards

Have you noticed lately how DIY and rescued headboards pop out everywhere on blogs, catalogs, and deco magazines? A fun, cheaper, and more original option to the conversative [and boring if you ask me] headboard. So go thrifting, trash digging and get you hands on an old piece of wood or metal, an antique door, a chicken fence, anything you can find that was not initially a headboard... and make it a headboard! How fun!

  2. Moi je n'ai pas de tête de lit... à défaut d'arriver à me décider! Au final je pense que je vais peindre une tête de lit noire sur le mur derrière, mais ta jolie sélection me donne d'autres idées aussi... on verra! :)

  15. I love these. This has given me inspiration. How do I bring my old fence inside? DO I need to stain it or treat the wood>?<
