One of my very first DIY projects was a DIY headboard. It was after college and my first time living solo, so I was really excited to make a place of my own. Did I mention this was right after college? So I definitely didn’t have money for the beautiful Pottery Barn headboard I was coveting! Instead I made my own and I was terribly proud of it! That project also kicked off a whole slew of other projects and inspired me to continue creating things for my home. There are so many great ideas out there for to make your own DIY headboard and I’ve rounded up 11 projects to inspire you!
