Upholstered head boards are all the rage when it comes to updating your bedroom. You can create a DIY upholstered headboard with wood frame without having to pay a fortune.

Fabric does not cover the whole headboard. Wood frames the headboard’s fabric part.

All headboards are not the same. The different types include tufted headboards, fixed, freestanding, straight and wingback.

If you have never worked with wood before or power tools, building the frame might seem a little scary. If you choose not to cut the frame yourself, most hardware stores can do the hard part for you. This way you have everything ready so you can get started assembling.

Make sure you take measurements beforehand. The size of the headboard frame will depend on the size of your bed. The height of the headboard is completely your choice. When you have chosen your height, measure from the top of the frame to the tallest point on your wall.
