It’s simple to dress up a plain headboard with stencils. Search for stencil patterns online (Pinterest is a great place to start) and print out the ones you love. You can tape them to the headboard to get an idea of the look. Use fabric paint – it sits on top of the wood and won’t bleed – to create your design. Start with a very light technique, and brush on thin coats of paint; you may need to apply several times to get your final look. Try metallic paint for a glam makeover, or softer neutrals to create a cozy space.
