As my hubby and I cannot paint the walls in the house we're renting, we needed a pretty dramatic headboard for our room.  Here's what we came up with:


It's really simple, but that's what I like about it.  Let me know what you think!

I really like that!  We can't paint in our place either (military housing) and this would be great as an alternative!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That really does make a difference, I bet!  It has presence and is probably comfortable to lean against.  Congratulations!

What am I looking at?  Is it padded?  how did you attach it to the wall?  Details, woman!

It is a padded headboard.  We used plywood cut into three pieces, each about 2'x7'.  We then put foam on with glue, then batting and then stapled the fabric stretched tight.  The frame was wood that we primed and painted and the hubby put together.  The panels are held together on the back by some pieces of wood and screws and then the frame was nailed along the edge.  we just leaned it against the wall, but it has the potential of being attached to the bed frame.
