Upholstered Headboards

So, a few weeks ago, I did a little post about my Girls' Room Design Dilemma.  I KNEW my bloggy friends would step up with some great ideas.  Richella reminded me of her guest room with twin beds and upholstered heaboards, which she did herself.  Seriously, Richella ROCKS!  She did a beautiful job on her guest room. 

So, yesterday, my friend Christy called to see if I had decided what to do.  It seems she had two bed frames and a twin box spring she was about to donate and she said I could have them!  YAY!  Christy, you ROCK!  I am hoping my in-laws still have the matresses from the daybed they offered us a few months ago, which would leave only one-box spring and the heaboards.  WOO HOO!  So, I've been looking at some inspiration photos that I thought I would share with y'all.  Check these out!

Apartment Therapy - a little dark for my girls, but pretty.

Hooked on Houses - My oldest would kill me if I made her room pink, but it's pretty.

Sorry to say I can't remember where I found this picture.  I LOOOOVE it, but I know better than to go with white bedding.  Love the big "S" though.  So cute! 
Are you ready for this?  It's my absolute FAVORITE!

OH MY GRACIOUS!  Do you hear the angels singing when you look at that picture?  No?  It's just me?  Oh well!  Is that gorgeous, or what?  Okay, so you can tell by looking at my blog header that I love turquoise and red together, but seriously, how gorgeous is that?  LOVE!  Of course, my daughter would hate it, but a mom can dream, right! 

So, I am armed with some wonderful inspiration thanks to my wonderful friends.  Thanks y'all!  Hope everyone has a great weekend!  The Oscars are Sunday night so be sure to stop by Monday so we can talk about the gorgeous dresses!

  1. I absolutely LOVE that PB Teen room and the last two pics! I dream of a day when I can have gorgeous fluffy white bedding... and then I realize I have dogs. And this will never be possible for me.

    Have fun with your girls and their room re-do! You've got some adorable ideas going~!

  2. I would definitely call all those rooms INSPIRING! I don't think I can even pick a favorite...there's something I like about each one. Hope you'll share pictures of whatever you decide to do!

  3. I think they are all great! I LOVE that pink one, but it's not going to be my room, now, is it? I think that PB one at the top is just plain perfect. There's something so clean lined about it.

    I can not wait to see what you do.

  4. Hubby and I made our headboard in our bedroom! We had a queen and decided we needed a king size bed before Ansley was born! We didn't want to spend the money on a new headboard, and we didn't want to worry about trying to match the other furniture pieces! I love how it turned out! Maybe someday I'll get a picture of it!

  5. I love the PB bedroom. Your girls must be excited about getting new beds and new decor. Keep us updated!

  6. I like the simplicity of the PB headboard, but I also love the tall fancy white monogrammed one! I'm know whatever you end up with will be gorgeous. Can't wait to see it!

  7. It'll be fun to see what you come up with, Tanya! I hope it works out to be something both you and your girls love. Thank you for your kind words! :)

  8. Do you individuals have a fb fan page? I looked for one on twitter however couldn't uncover one, I would really like to turn out to be a fan!
