Your bedroom should be an oasis — a soothing space where you can count on a good night’s sleep. Sometimes that means a new mattress, but sometimes, a headboard can completely transform the look and feel of your bedroom while adding style, luxury and comfort to your space. Instead of heading to the furniture store to buy an out-of-box headboard, you can easily improvise and make one yourself using some basic building supplies.
