How to Make Your Own Pottery Barn Seagrass Headboard DIY!

Have you seen all of the gorgeous headboards on the Pottery Barn website? They are to die for but they are also pretty darn pricey, like between $500 and $1000 kind of pricey.

You can always buy one ready made if you have the cash but we saw one of the best seagrass headboard ideas ever on this blog awhile ago and while their tutorial was darn good; but..I am too ticky to go along with the idea of sleeping with the very pillow that I rest my face on backed up to a headboard upholstered with a used seagrass rug. That is just too darn gross and nasty for me to wrap my head around and since I can't think of a way to sanitize natural fibers to suit me without destroying them with heat and moisture. For that reason, I am more in favor of buying fabric for the upholstered headboard than using a rug as the Murphy family suggested in their tutorial. The rest of their instructions from making an OSB board frame, how to mount it on the wall and cover it are just as applicable when using (clean?) fabric as they are if you choose to use an old rug.

Determining the Size and Height of the DIY Seagrass Headboard

The next decision will be how tall you want the headboard to be. The height can be flexible in that anything from two feet or so taller than the top of your mattress all the way up to the ceiling's crown molding is possible depending on how large you want to make it and whether or not you are willing to sacrifice the wall space that might otherwise be a place to display artwork or wall hangings. Another consideration is that the bigger the headboard, the more seagrass fabric you will need to buy to cover it.

Upcycling an Old Headboard

Here is a quick and easy seagrass headboard idea for those of you unwilling or unable to tackle a big DIY project that requires building and covering a frame.

Simply use your existing headboard or one that you bought secondhand as a template or foundation and cover it with fabric using a glue gun rather than upholstery tacks to secure it to the wood.

To Paint or Not To Paint; It's Up to You

Most decorators prefer to use seagrass in its natural state which is either a light honey tone or a darker cocoa color. However, a headboard painted in hot pink or turquoise blue would be adorable in a girl's beach themed bedroom.
