Creative and {Cheap} DIY Headboard Ideas

My best friend just got married. She and her husband are both students and have to get creative when it comes to home décor. She and I have spent hours poring over ideas for headboards and we made a list of our top ten favorite ideas. {And suddenly I feel as though I need a new headboard…}

1. Reclaimed Wood Doors: This overall look and feel is really in right now. It’s very Shabby Chic and gives a very cozy feel. Love this from Flea Chic.

2. Pallet Wood: I love this because it’s similar enough to the reclaimed doors but different enough to be a little more versatile for a wider variety of overall styles. Fun Idea from Rice Designs.

3. Mantel Moulding: This is a very regal, mature look for a room. Great idea at Ana White.

4. Antique Windows: Another shabby chic-esq idea but you could always streamline the windows for a more modern feel.  I really love this idea.  I have a hard time finding a headboard that I really love.  This is a great one from Liz Marie.

5. Lattice Look: How funky is this? I found this cute idea at Little Bit Funky.  I love the bright color of this headboard and it could work in a master bedroom, guest room or kid’s room.

7. Canopy: This is another regal look to add to the list. It makes me think of a castle in England or something but I really love how Design Sponge has made it look casual.

8. Shelf: This made the list because of it’s function. You can do a different style shelf for a cleaner, sleeker look but either way you’ll have function. Found this cute idea on Robin- Happy at Home.

9. Lights: This made the list because it adds light and it’s a clean look. Very cute idea at Apartment Therapy.  I love that you can have the lights on or off. Romantic, right?
