Headboards Galore: Easy Room Upgrades

Try a New Stain

Depending on the grain of your existing headboard -- this won’t work on pressed wood -- you might want to try sanding down the wood and staining it a new color. You can take an antique-looking headboard in a more modern direction by staining it a lighter shade, and give a sleek modern headboard old world charm with a rich, red-toned stain. To completely update the look of your room, stain all of your bedroom furniture to match the headboard and update the hardware, too.
