Affordable Headboards: Sometimes it is actually cheaper to buy a headboard than it is to DIY one.
Making a quality DIY Headboard is budget-friendly when you consider custom options with patterned fabric; but, if you are looking for a neutral affordable headboard for your home, you are most likely better off buying one. Some of them are even under $100, which is less than the price of plywood and foam!

We bought the bed frame and headboard in our guest bedroom for $300, and man, it was worth every penny! If I had to DIY it, it would have cost way more than $300 (see similar bedframe with headboard here and it would have taken forever!
But as far as the rest of the house, if you are a regular reader, you already know that we have DIYed most of the headboards. That’s because I love patterns, and instead of handing over a hefty amount of cash for a custom headboard with custom fabric, I’d rather do it myself.
We built a DIY headboard for my daughter’s room, for our nursery, and for our master bedroom. And heck, I even made a free DIY Headboard Cheat Sheet if you want to build your own! Realistically, it will cost you between $100-$200 to make your own between paying for plywood, fabric, batting, and foam.
