It's easy to tackle a DIY headboard project. If you're reading this, you're not the type to pay several hundred dollars for a decorative addition to the bedroom that you can easily build for yourself. If you're looking for an easy upholstery project, this is perfect. One flat surface where no one will ever see the back means you can fudge some parts and still come out with something you can show off. (And if you don't want to show it off, it's your bedroom and you don't have to.)
