Historically, the main purpose of a headboard was to keep drafts from flowing over the sleeper’s head, sending cold air to the floor instead.
Not the main purpose today. Thanks to better insulated rooms, headboards are aesthetic additions to a room…..but who says they have to be boring!
Artistically painted tween headboards are a superb way to add a little dazzle to your darling’s room.
Add a focal point to a small space, give a room personality, or ground the design with strong color are just three reasons to go artsy on the headboard.
One other is to make your tween a happy kid. Any of these ideas shown here will do…..or do you have a favorite of your own?
Watch next week for more on painted headboards…..this time skipping the bed and going straight to the wall!
