It's DIY month here at AT and I'm still mired in what to do about the headboard of our bed. I painted a headboard a few months ago, but while that was an improvement, it feels unfinished, and I've been casting around for a next move. In the meantime, I've come across a few really nice sources of inspiration that I'd like to share. The nice thing about headboards is that they are both practical and make a big decorative impact - AND that you really can do them yourself. Enjoy!...
