No Room for a Headboard?

If you’re like me and living in a small space where there isn’t room for much extra furniture and certainly no room for a headboard, then you have to get creative in making your space seem finished. I would love an upholstered headboard but simply don’t have the room or the funds to commit to redecorating my room. Instead, I upholstered an old bulletin board when I moved in last summer. It’s always bugged me that this didn’t quite have a bold enough effect, but it didn’t occur to me until last week that there was something I could do about it. I made a trip into the basement and pulled out a couple frames which have been sitting in storage. Hung them around the bulletin board and voila – a headboard!

The first two images are frame – headboard inspiration that I found on Pinterest


And my take on the frame headboard… now I just need to develop some new pictures since these pictures haven’t been switched out since fourth year of college…
