If you are new to DIY-ing then I've got the easiest project for you to try! This simple, rustic headboard makes a huge impact without requiring a big budget. That's why I've made it the very first in a series I'm calling "$100 DIY Projects". I love how it makes our room feel more finished and more our style. I started with just the boards and after living with that for a little while realized I wanted some more depth and more flexibility for seasonal styling.

The shelf gave me all kinds of options for styling and the sconces were very budget friendly as well. I bought the pair from Amazon, on sale for $39.

For today, the $100 DIY project includes the headboard and shelf. Below is a short video to guide you through the steps:

It's as easy as that! A gorgeous, rustic bed that won't break the bank and won't take a lot of time to make! If you make The Simple Farmhouse headboard in your home and share it on Instagram please tag me @the.simple.farmhouse and use the hashtag #TSF100dollarDIY. I would love to see!

Hi!  I'm Laura - pastor's wife, homeschooling mom of five and avid DIY-er.  Simple Farmhouse style, to me, is a handmade home that works on a budget.  It's having a table that can handle lots of 'love' from five kids without any stress about keeping things perfect.  It's finding simple and creative approaches to functionality and design.  And it's incorporating pieces with a past in order to remind us of why the present is so precious.  It's all about family.  After all, the most important things in life happen at home.
