12 Creative DIY Headboards You’ll Love

Without a headboard, your bed probably seems like it just sort of ends at the wall. To avoid this anti-climactic bed conundrum, you’ll want to invest in a headboard.

A quick search through the internet will show you that headboards can get really pricey, particularly the upholstered ones. If all you need is that headboard, you won’t want to throw a few hundred dollars at it.

Instead, make your own or spruce up a cheaper purchased headboard–you’ll not only pay less for a great look, you can customize it to fit the space or your style. And that’s something you just can’t do when buying a premade headboard.

It’s hard to resist the allure of a cozy bed after a long day. Why not make yours even more inviting by adding the perfect headboard?
