  • There are so many ways to make your own style for a headboard. I’ve been searching too. I decided on the shutters…since I already had them it was a no brainer. I love them. I can stick pics, cards, etc in the louvers or clip them with a decorated clothes pin. I plan to add a banner of old hankies to it in the future too.
    Good luck picking your fave.

  • these looks so fun1! I can’t decide which one I like best! Good luck deciding!! 🙂ReplyCancel
