If you’re thinking about renewing your headboard, why not whitewash it? Whitewashing makes things relaxed and distressed, adds a shabby chic touch to the room, is great for beach houses, and looks great in almost any interior. You can easily renovate your old headboard with whitewash paint, or simply make a new one out of an old door, mantle, or several old boards. I also like the idea of whitewashing a bamboo headboard – it looks amazingly modern despite being zen! You can easily make such a whitewashed headboard yourself. There are many tutorials that will help. In the meantime, check out the photos below for inspiration!
