DIY headboard with clever storage spaces

When you have a small bedroom you have to find new and ingenious storage solutions for all your belongings in order to also be able to maintain an airy décor. A headboard, for example, can be much more than it lets you see. You can even build your own headboard and include in the design a series of shelves or clever storage compartments for things you usually want to have close to you when you’re going to sleep.

This particular headboard lets you conveniently store a book, a magazine, your phone, a glass of water and other similar objects somewhere where they’re safe and hidden from view. To build such a headboard you need a table top, a series of shelves or something else that can be turned into shelves and some screws. Building the headboard is very simple. It’s also a quick project that will only occupy a few minutes of your time so you can make this a week-end project.

First make sure the table top you have fits the beds. If not, you can adjust its dimensions. Once that part is over, attach the shelves, in this case the picture ledge and use screws to make it stick in place. Use two screws for each shelf. If your shelves go from one end of the headboard to the other, than you can use only three screws and two or three shelves. Place the headboard between the bed and the wall and that’s all.{found on ikeahackers}.
