Make a Headboard for $60

Decor and the Dog

Headboards always seem to be ridiculously over priced for what is essentially a few pieces of wood. These homeowners took matters into their own hands and replicated a favorite design from West Elm that with shipping would have cost them $260 — and they did it all for $60!

Over at Decor and the Dog they drew up plans and made a trip to the hardware store. After a few simple cuts and the purchase of a jig and some paint they were ready to get to work.

The end result is pretty darn close to the original and although this type of DIY work might not be for everyone, this makes a more elaborate structure appear rather simple to recreate. Check out all the details over at Decor and the Dog, they've even been kind enough to provide measurements and cut lists for queen and king size beds!
