Headboards Galore: Easy Room Upgrades


Sand and Paint

The easiest update is a simple coat of paint. Pick a color that will really pop in your room – if your colors are primarily neutral, try turquoise, burgundy or a matte grey. If your bedroom set isn’t an antique or family heirloom, then don’t be shy about trying something out of your comfort zone – whether it’s a jewel-tone color, a fun neon accent stripe, or a two-tone look -- to make a huge design impact and set the tone for your whole room.
