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.
Turn a door on it’s side, slap on some crown molding and a coat of paint and voila! Want to try this one out? Click here for a tutorial.
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).
Perhaps the most time consuming DIY headboard project, but if you can pull it off, you’ve saved yourself quite a bundle! (Pssst, there’s a DIY tutorial here!)
