Easy and Cheap DIY Headboard Ideas

Prev1 of 14Next

As long as my husband and I have been married, we have never had a headboard or a matching bedroom set.  This is crazy, I know.  For some reason, our bedroom is the last room in the house to get any attention.  So this winter, while we have no outdoor projects going on, we are working on our bedroom.  Of course the bedroom of my dreams would be complete with a sitting room and a fireplace and a massive walk-in closet and extra laundry room, but right now, all I want is a headboard:)

I have been researching different headboards so I can decide what I want.  I really battle my tastes and style sometimes, because I love so much of everything!  That’s why I am so glad “eclectic” is in, and nothing really has to match.  Thank goodness for that because I can’t really decide, so I have elements of everything all throughout my house!  I have a craftsman style home, which style I love first and foremost.  But when I pick things out, I find myself wanting a craftsman kitchen with white cabinets, and an industrial entry way with a steel entry table and a rustic bedroom with barnwood and pallets.  Help!

My husband is a masterful woodworker, so we really never look for things to buy, we look for things to make.  Here are some pretty amazing headboards I found, and now all I have to do is decide which style to go with.  We are going with gray sheets, and that is as far as I have gotten yet.  I haven’t picked out a duvet cover or a bedspread yet, so we really can go a lot of different directions.
