Create a DIY headboard! Photos are from my own that I made this weekend. Cheap, easy, and one of a kind! Plywood and two 1x4s: $9 Fabric (faux leather in an espresso color): $12 Polyester batting (used for quilting): $14 Decorative nails: $12 I'm really happy with how it turned out. Bought the wood at Home Depot and had them cut it to size. Screwed the 1x4s on, then used a staple gun to attach batting and fabric. Hammered in the strip of decorative nails and DONE!
