Sticker shock.

Last week I was all about painting a faux-headboard, but this week I’ve found an equally enticing alternative for apartment dwellers: headboard decals!

These might even be fun to combine with the painted headboard idea; you could customize it with your own details, especially for these ones that look like they have  a lot of empty space in the center.

This one is my favorite:

Has anyone ever used these wall decals before? My big concern would be that paint around it would fade and you’d end up with a headboard shadow once you finally peel it off. I’d love to hear how they work!

    I love this idea. My fiance and I live in an old house and have a tiny, not-so-desirable bedroom. I’d love a fun way to add some spunk to our bedroom until we can renovate it properly. (And perhaps one day purchase a proper headboard?) :)

    I love these! I’m kind of a sucker for the wall decals that say something sweet. Maybe not in my own bedroom but I love this for a little girl nursery:

    I loved what cupcakes and cashmere did with them, that definitely got bookmarked for a future apartment project!
