Every room needs a focal point...something totally amazing that deserves a second of admiration every time you walk into the space. In the kitchen, that might be a fantastic glass-tiled backsplash or a restaurant-grade stove. In the living room it could be a bold, bright couch or a regal fireplace. In the bedroom, though, the focal point is almost always the headboard. The presence -- or rather absence -- of a headboard can make or break your boudoir's look. It can also set you back a big chunk of cash...unless you make it yourself!

These 22 beautiful DIY headboards are sure to bring your bedroom to the next level without breaking the bank.
