All good DIY projects start with good inspiration. I don't want to buy a headboard, so here's my inspiration to start some ideas to make one. Crate&Barrel has a pretty basic bed and headboard that would give us a start. Warehouse Direct had a mod-Asian inspired set-up, along with some other collections that include attached nightstands that I like. We agreed that one of our favorites was the Platform Bed from West Elm. The Mandal Headboard from IKEA is a good idea that's not too overpowering. I like the Ramberg bed from ikea, but Daniel prefers the Malm bed frame--at least we both agree on the medium-brown finish. The low platform bed frame from West Elm looks like it could be adapted to do it ourselves. In other DIY projects, West Elm's parsons side table and coffee table look simple and attractive. Those are some ideas to get us started.
