Creative DIY Headboards

A headboard is great way to add weight to a bed and style to even the simplest of bedrooms.  If you’re on a budget, a simple bed frame can be totally transformed with some inexpensive supplies (some of which you may already have around the house) and a little elbow grease.  Here are some of our favourite Houzz finds!
