A So-Simple DIY To Brighten Up Your Bedroom

Sure, we have dozens of Pinterest boards dedicated to the perfect fall tablescape, but modeling your entire apartment after your favorite glossy's set-up can get a little pricey. That's why we've called on the ladies of A Fab Life, the decor-on-a-dime experts that wholly believe everyday should be fabulous, no matter what kind of shape your bank account's in.
There are a million tutorials out there on making your own headboard, but most of them are costly, involve a jigsaw and feel a bit daunting for us lazier DIYers. We’ve developed our own easy, little way to get a new headboard (or a new office inspiration board!) for about $20 and 20 minutes.
