Does your bedroom lack character? A simple character upgrade could be as easy as replacing or making a new headboard. A new trend is the tufted headboard, which comes in a wide range of fabrics, colors and shapes. You can find these headboards at nearly every furniture retailer and on-line sites, such as Etsy. However, if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative, consider a DIY project. DIY Network has a detailed step-by-step process for creating these beautiful headboards.
Vintage industrial chic has gain more recognition in recent years primarily due to the popularity of loft apartments in urban cities.
