24 AMAZING DIY Headboard Ideas

I am going to tell you guys a secret. My bed has no headboard. Gasp! I know. Blame the budget. Shortly after we got married I fell in love with this gorgeous, heavy, sleigh headboard which of course we couldn’t afford. Well, I am sick of waiting, it’s time to do it myself.  It’s like I woke up and had this realization, “hey, I have two hands.. and I like to make things!” Of course I started my search for inspiration on pinterest and oh my gosh. You guys. It is AH-mazing the inspiration I found. So of course I have to share.
