Easy Wooden Headboard

If you remember,
almost two years ago, 
I built 2 wooden twin size bed frames (project HERE) out of a futon frame.
I initially just used a canopy to hang over the beds,
but this week I decided to build the headboards.
I looked in my stash and found some pieces I could use.

These were the backing of 2 solid wood bookshelves we got on
 
Craigslist for $5.

I then headed to Lowe's with my 6 year old to buy 3 pieces of 1x3 wood.
So for less than $6, I was able to make not one, but two headboards.
That makes each headboard only $3.
Pretty simple concept.

Straight cuts.
Less than 1 hour.

I painted the headboards with gray paint.
That's what I had.

Worked perfect for this project.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela
