This rustic headboard is so awesome and it only costs twenty dollars to make. I came across this wonderful rustic farmhouse headboard idea by The Rehab Life on Youtube and I knew I had to make it immediately. I am gradually transitioning to the shabby chic farmhouse style and this project really suits all my needs. It is everything my new bedroom needs and the price point is beyond perfect. I got all my wood for this headboard project at Home Depot and a helpful staff member cut all the wood I needed before I left the store, so that saved me a big step in the making of this fabulous headboard.
