There’s no better way to spruce up a bedroom than with a headboard, but how many of us can afford the high-end look we all love? Salvaged materials and inexpensive objects can be turned into custom DIY headboards for a look that’s all your own. Check out these finds:

Apartment Therapy shows us how canopies, framed photos and salvaged wood can become bold headboards.

A collection of mirrors transforms a boring bedroom into a DIY dream.

A rescued mantelpiece and old doors become shabby chic headboards at Belle Maison.

    So how do you get to the instructions for this headboard?

  4. Angie says:

    I made a headboard out of a door about a year ago (Out of need because I am CHEAP, and a regular king headboard is like 100 or above!!) It is beautiful and much better than a regular one you would buy, I get compliments all of the time.

    Great ideas … I bought a garden trellis shaped like a peacock tail, cut the legs down a bit and it was perfect for a queen size headboard!!

    This is a great idea to make a custom headboard, just wondering is it worth the time and cost of material? I was just checking outhttp://www.headboarddepot.com and they do reviews on headboards and the prices were very good.
