DIY Headboard Ideas Using Recycled Materials

    Nobody can doubt the economy of a simple metal bead frame, with a box-spring and mattress. The downside to this classic bed is that there is no headboard. Of course, an intrepid DIY-er would not see the lack of a headboard as a problem; she would see it as an opportunity to build something out of found materials. I've selected seven DIY headboards by talented DIY bloggers, as inspiration for your own DIY headboard project. All of these headboards are made from recycled materials, which makes them inexpensive to make, as well as on-trend.
