Simple headboard 2
Thomas J. Story

Canvas screen headboard

Start with several prefabricated frames ― available from art stores ― sized to fit the width of the bed. Cover with canvas and hinge together to make a screen.

Or hinge together several prefabricated artist's canvases. Then paint them to match the decor of the room. Here, we used acrylic paint to create a plaid pattern that complements the floral designs on the bed linens.

Design: Francoise Kirkman, Palo Alto; painting by Therese Heynderick
