Here is a headboard I made for my daughter.  I know the pinks clash... fabric selection in our area is horrible, but she said she wanted pink and green... I was lucky to find this.  So maybe the rest of her room will have to get updated away from the my little ponies...lol

Hey partner. I think it looks great. The color of your daughters walls are the same as my daughters. I also used the green in the headboard and white trim.

Is this attached to the wall?  It looks like one of those headboards that they make on the DIY shows.  Looks pretty cool.

I just took a sheet of plywood and cut it down to size.  Wrapped it in cotton batting, using a staple gun to secure it to the back of the plywood.  Then did the same with the material.  The wood trim pieces I had to use finishing nails due to the layers of batting and material, I just bent over the extra bit of nail that came through the plywood.  Then I attached 2 "hooks" to hang on the nails that I put in the wall.  The plywood was a thinner kind, so it really didn't weigh that much.  If you do a search for DIY headboards, you can find some better instructions on how to do it.

I'd love something that nice in my room! My bed is just a mattress & box spring on the ground.  Undecided
