Hi there, sweet Friends!! One of the things I always look for at thrift stores is headboards. They can be repurposed and Upcycled in so many fun ways! They are almost like a blank canvas.
Today I’m sharing ten of my own Upcycled headboard projects. Maybe I’ll have you looking for a great deal on a headboard too!
Click on each “After” photo or the link below it to take you to that post.
Let’s start with my first headboard project ever, this $5 yard sale find:
I found this for $5 at a yard sale. They had another one too and I kicked myself after for not grabbing that one as well, but honestly my car was at max capacity that day anyway.
And here it is after:
The next headboard I redid was this gorgeous pineapple bed I scored for $15 at Lucketts:
It was scratched from corner to corner, but it was getting paint anyway…
This spindle headboard is from a set I got for $15 at the thrift store:
It got a sweet graphic and became coat storage:
I found this headboard for $60 on a local Facebook yard sale site:
It was a king size and I could just kick myself for not redoing it for my own room. This would have been gorgeous reupholstered and tufted!
It did get new upholstery though, and a fresh paint job, and sold almost immediately:
This next headboard was a steal at $4. It was one of a ton just like it at the thrift store. Clearly a nearby hotel was getting an update:
I decided to repeat the “Cottage Inn” theme I used before since that one sold quickly at my last Christmas Craft Market:
Next up is this bed I found for $30 at the thrift store:
It was in really rough shape, but I loved the first bench I did that was similar to this, so this became a bench as well:
This headboard was a $5 score from the thrift store. I prefer ones that have solid pieces across as opposed to ones with spindles…more possibilities:
This also became an organizer of sorts:
Earlier this year I found this pretty one for $10 at the thrift store:
I loved the lines on this one. I decided to pull the “Cottage Inn” card on this one too:
That last one was from this year’s March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days series, and so is this next one.
I found this headboard for $10 at a yard sale:
This got a farmhouse makeover:
Completing this Headboard Upcycle round up is this recent headboard project I shared that started as this $10 thrift store find:
And became this pretty and functional chalkboard:
And there you have it, 10 upcycled headboards!
I have at least six more that I can think of that are still in need of makeovers. Somehow that still doesn’t stop me from looking for them when I’m thrifting. Wow I might have a problem, ya’ll. No worries…I will redo all the headboards…eventually. 🙂
If you liked this post, you might like this one too. It has a bunch of my older repurposed projects!
I’ll be back on Tuesday sharing what I did with this buffet. You won’t believe what I paid for it!
UPDATE: Hey ya’ll…no need to wait! See it HERE now!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Addie, here’s your picture!
These are the three bushes on the side of my house side-by-side about a month or so ago. 🙂
