A headboard can make or break a bedroom. Bold enough, it can be a statement that sets the tone for the entire room's design. This eye-popping, hand-painted geometric headboard would certainly boost any bedroom, and you could make one yourself for under $100! And it's a much more affordable option than the $700 headboard option it's inspired by...

Reeves from The Weathered Door made this headboard:

After graduating from a twin bed to a full bed I was in need of a new headboard. I began searching for ideas online but I wasn't finding anything I loved. Instead of an upholstered headboard I wanted something that was unique with a modern twist . So, after searching for a geometric headboard I finally found one after a few weeks on Urban Outfitters, but there was a problem. It cost $700.

I decided to build my own and began planning it all out. Building the actual headboard was very simple. I stained, and sealed the wood, and then began measuring and taping out the design. Taping took the longest. It wasn't difficult, just time consuming. I first paint on the white diamond, let it cure and them painted on the coral part of the design. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I love the geometric design and the crisp lines and colors. Plus, you can't beat the price!
