1. Old Door Headboard
An old salvaged door makes a beautiful headboard and while other wooden headboards may run you hundreds of dollars, you can create this great DIY version for about 25 bucks. You will need to saw the door down to the size you need and then add some chair rail molding and a little paint and you end up with a beautiful wooden headboard that is completely customizable. What’s so great is that you can make this one in less than a day and you can paint it to perfectly match the other furnishings in your room. Plus, it’s really cheap so that’s a great point, too.
