Sleeping Beauty: Vintage Headboards

My secret confession: I love a morning in bed. And I’m all for going to bed before 8pm, even if my husband and seven-year-old poke fun at me.

I love lying in bed while I scroll through Pinterest, Instagram or read my favourite blogs. I absolutely love my bed.

On a recent morning lie-in, I came across the most ingenious idea for a headboard – an old church pew (see pic 1). Given my love of all things vintage (and religious), I was in raptures.

I can’t even try to express how much I love this idea. Unfortunately our bedroom is too small. (I know, I know – we should just sell the house, right?!) Needless to say, this did send me on a serious Pinterest headboard bender.

And the ideas are endless! Some people are just so damn creative. From DIY wooden crates to vintage doors to Moroccan wooden screens and huge vintage maps.

If you already have a vintage headboard, be sure to post a pic on Instagram or Facebook and hashtag #TagItVintage so we can all take a looksee.
