I am so excited that Something Turquoise has expanded their content and I am thrilled to be part of the team sharing not only amazing wedding content, but lots of post-wedding lifestyle content as well. I know all too well the pains of having a new home or apartment and not being able to find exactly what you are looking for, or not having the funds to furnish it the way you dreamed. I also know that this is a DIY loving crowd. I, myself, am a DIY home enthusiast and I’m excited to share awesome finds and things I’ve learned with you!
To kick off this brand new category on our blog, I wanted to find some fabulous DIY projects that I think would resonate with you guys! I have put together a round-up of amazing DIY modern headboard ideas. Whether you are refreshing your bedroom, or have found yourself with a guest room to decorate, these ideas really are genius and look like you found them at the priciest furniture store in town.
OVERSIZED WOVEN HEADBOARD
Love the graphic lines and rich texture of this oversized woven headboard.
A MODERN-RUSTIC IKEA HACK
We love a good Ikea Hack and this one is such a perfect balance of modern and rustic.
SLATS ARE A FAB TEXTURE
This textural headboard can be executed at a great price point. I love the naked wood they chose, but it would look great with a dark stain as well.
BE ON TREND WITH AN UPHOLSTERED ARCH
The epitome of “on-trend,” the arched shape and the pretty pink color are so perfectly now.
