DIY Headboards

A simple headboard can make a $50 Hollywood Frame look like a million bucks, and it can really make a statement in a room. Unfortunately, many headboards can set you back hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. So I’ve pulled together a few of my favorite inexpensive, DIY headboard ideas. Enjoy, and happy headboarding!

Painted shutters- simple, beachy, perfectly shabby chic.

Use reclaimed planks or a wooden pallet and put your inner artist to work. There are so many possibilities with this one! I absolutely love this one from House Tweaking (click for step-by-step instructions).

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
