Hi! My name is Jenni Radosevich, DIY blogger of I Spy DIY, and I am so excited to be here today posting as a guest Style Spotter!
I SPY DIY is a website where all my do-it-yourself projects come to life! I love seeking out the latest trends in fashion and home then showing you how to recreate them for less. I started my site in 2010 as a creative outlet and have been lucky enough to turn DIY content into my full-time gig. Being able to inspire my readers to create their own DIY project is what makes me most happy.
When I found out that Better Homes and Garden magazine wanted to feature my DIY wood headboard in the “I Did It!” section of the July issue, I was beyond excited. I have always loved and admired BHG, and this was a dream come true.
The day of the shoot was a complete whirlwind and totally surreal. My small studio was spilling over with props and people working to make my DIY headboard magazine-ready. I am so excited and grateful that they were able to capture my first wood-working project!
This project was one of my favorites and surprisingly pretty easy to achieve! I chose to paint half of the wood for something a little edgier, but if you’re looking for a more monochromatic look, use a single shade of wood. Or, you can really spice things up by painting the wood with bright, bold colors to make a real statement!
Finding a unique headboard for a king-size bed that did not break the bank was nearly impossible. Since the casing used to create the pattern is so inexpensive, it’s easy to scale larger for minimal cost. I also love that you can get more creative and intricate with the pattern with only a few additional cuts.
No matter what you do, this DIY project is the perfect solution to an upscale headboard on a low-cost budget. Get the full instructions for this project here or in the July issue of Better Homes and Gardens!
