2. DIY Headboards...

If you're dead set on getting a headboard for your bed, but don't want to spend the extra money, why not paint your own?

Sounds crazy, I know but check this out.

First, go out and get some paint, making sure that it's a contrasting color to your current wall color.

Now measure the width of your bed and using painter's tape, create a floor to ceiling column.2

Paint inside the column, let it dry and voila!

Instant painted headboard!

While paint on a wall might not seem like an exciting alternative to headboard, paired with the right bedding and accent pillows, it looks quite handsome.
