DIY Headboards

People DIY for all sorts of reasons—you save money, you want something unique or you just love a great project. We support all of the above! A lot of parents are trying their hand at DIY headboards because, as Rebecca shared in her DIY headboard tutorial, it can be a pretty simple project depending on how ambitious your design is.

We’re loving some of the ideas that have been sprouting up in the Project Junior gallery.
