DIY Rustic Headboard

Brigittes condo is #LIVINGGOALS. It’s beautifully decorated with a combination of rustic charm and vintage cali boho finds. Their living space is small, which means storage is everything.

Her current bed from Ikea is great. The bed has 6 underbed storage drawers that make it completely functional for Brigittes space. What I love about Ikea is the multiple pieces the bed comes with, meaning that it’s the ultimate relationship tester when building but it ALSO means the current headboard is completely removable without even touching the part of the bed that works. If you pop that headboard off, we have a new blank area to give this bed the style it needs.

I propose an IKEA hack, remove the top headboard from the bedframe and replace it with something vintage, beautiful and wooden. This is the ultimate DIY solution to any homeowner looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind space -- and it’s super simple to accomplish in one day!

MY DOOR SIZE: 31 ¾ X 78 ½

*I’m opting to keep my door size larger than the width of the bed, but you can easily cut your down to the width of the bed frame!
