I saw this and knew I had to share it with you ladies.
A curtain panel, curtain rod, fabric markers, and your favorite quotes.
Instant headboard!

    1. I feel ya! Keep it in mind for a guest room. I also think it might look cute as drapes in an office if the curtains stay mostly closed so one can read the quotes.

      Thanks for stopping by! :)

    2. OH! Good idea! I have a small bedroom that I somewhat turned into a library, I could do it there!

    1. Yes! I would love to do one in a kid's room with cute, fun, whimsical quotes. Perhaps one day for Baby Whimsy.

  4. I love this idea! I would take it a step further and make full length curtains. :)

    1. Yes for sure! As long as it's at a window where the drapes stay mostly closed so your quotes can be read.

  9. Well, isn't that just the most unique thing!? Never saw anything like that before. One of these days my room is getting a make-over! =)

  10. I just love it. *happy sigh* :o)

  11. Clever idea! (But, YIKES! I'd be too weenie to do it. Having seen Psycho far too many times might have something to do with it. I now fear shower curtains, curtain curtains, draperies, etc. like there's no tomorrow. Yes, go ahead. You can call me a psycho.)

  12. Wow, and it seems relatively easy to make too! I could so do this...

    ReplyDelete
  13. What an awesome idea...though I'd never be able to print so beautifully!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I LOVE! And the color scheme is lovely too!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Its really nice. But I like to lean against my headboard so not sure if it would work with this one.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I am actually drooling over this one, Juju! I wish we could just buy it, because I don't think I could make it that perfectly. :)

    1. Awww that would be the fun part. Playing with the letters and shapes. Maybe you could find some panels at a thrift shop to practice on? :)

  17. Creative AND bookish....great find Juju! *adds to crafty list of things to try*

  18. That is awesome! We still don't have a headboard(horrible, huh?!). This looks like a great idea, though. :)

    1. Not horrible at all :) I hope this inspires you!

  19. I saw this a few weeks ago on pinterest and pinned it. I love it but I haven't quite figured out where I would put it--perhaps white words on white sheers in my memory room?

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is fabulous!! My handwriting is not nearly that pretty though, lol

  21. Oh, what a neat idea! As a couple people have said, my handwriting is awful now though--if only I'd seen this idea 10 years ago when it was still pretty, hah.

    Thanks for sharing, Juju!

  22. I need a headboard and wow what a great one this is! thank you so much for sharing!

  23. Oh my! How lovely is that?! I wonder if my hubby would go for it? He'd probably just roll his eyes and nod his head. Just more bookishness in the house to love! :o) Great find!

    1. LOL :) You're hubby is sweet and understanding like mine isn't he? ;)

    2. He definitely is. I'd never get away with all the reading & blogging otherwise. Love him! :o)

  24. That is brilliant. And I love the fonts!

  25. This is so cute and creative. Somehow I don't think my husband would go for it in our bedroom but it would be perfect for a guest bedroom... when I get one :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this idea! As an English student, it's perfect.

    I wonder if hubs would agree with me that our living room needs curtains like this ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. So pretty! I have a sleigh bed, but I'd totally make something like this if I didn't! Maybe in the future when I have a nice guest room... ;)

  37. This is lovely! Unfortunately, my penmanship isn't quite good enough that I want to see it every time I walk into my room.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. You know, I have a collection of quotes I love and I always wanted to put them somewhere I can see them and remember the truths hidden in them. Looking at all your posts with DIY and Eureka! is giving me some really crazy, but cool ideas. Thank you! :)

  40. I love this!! I think I am going to try this not as a headboard but simply curtains in my daughters room. I am thinking with Dr. Suess quotes.
    Thank You!!
