I really have fallen in love with this blog called younghouselove. They are a married couple in Richmond, VA that have completely remodeled their home as well as done many other do it yourself projects. One project they described was making your own headboard inexpensively using three ikea end tables (the ones that are 7.99 each), having a 2×4 cut up in three 36 inch pieces and buying some metal brackets. I must say it came out great.. what do you think? I just need to get something to reinforce it a little more, but otherwise, yay!
