Easy-to-make headboards with a custom look (1956)

Headboards with a custom look

Cost little… easy to make

1) All the warmth and charm of an Early American setting, with emphasis on the headboard. Idea for its shape is from a colonial shop sign. Fabric-covered panel can be omitted to show solid wood back.For a good-looking headboard, there’s nothing like the richness of leather. Interesting texture comes from the interweaving of cowhide belting strips, set in a natural-wood frame.

3) Newest favorite, the brass bedstead, has Victorian sentiment and contemporary design. Slenderly-proportioned wood frame supports the smart row of shiny brass curtain rods. The brass knobs add that essential finishing touch.

4) This striking effect comes from the unusual material we’ve used. It’s aluminum, with sheer, silvery look that’s much like caning. Wooden frame has pickled finish.

5) Gaily patterned from head to foot. The three fabric areas are headboard, bolster, and spread. Headboard can be an old one padded and slipcovered, or new frame can be built.

6) Modern ladder-back that’s equally at home in a traditional room. Its appealing simplic-ity is achieved with aluminum tubing and wooden uprights.
