DIY: Make Your Own Headboard

As a designer, I absolutely LOVE the idea of making your own headboard. I made this headboard using here is one I made for a women’s homeless shelter makeover back in 2015. I made this headboard using plywood, window trim, and white paint. I UPcycled a chair from the thrift store by using white paint, foam and fabric.

Here’s some simple yet elegant ways to make your very own from HGTV.
