Wanting an oversized headboard.
June 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Small door behind bed is to an unused crawl space. Would like the head board to be oversized going past the top of door to where the wall slants to meet the ceiling. Would love suggestions. King size bed. Thankful for any help I can get. Roberta

I would probably try to find an old door with great details at an antique store to hang horizontally in that space. You could paint it to match the bedding, or stain it to match the wood in the bookshelves. Just google "headboard made from doors". I just searched "headboards made from old doors" on houzz and over 1000 pictures came up. You could also use old shutters that are not taller than the indentation where the wall meets the ceiling.

If it's hung on the wall you would have to keep the bed where it is, but then it doesn't have to be attached to the bed frame.

Here's a houzz ideabook on how to construct a DIY upholstered headboard. You could totally customize the dimensions to conceal the door perfectly.

If you don't need to attach the headboard to the bed, you could use a three or four panel screen. This would be easy to move if you ever need to access the crawlspace. [houzz=
