Upholstered Headboards - DIY or Buy?

After one post on the progress we've made in our master bedroom and another on the guest bedroom, the topic of headboards sure has come up a lot recently. I think a headboard is a vital part to making a bedroom look put together and "finished," and it's driving me crazy not having the right one for our master and not one at all (gasp!) in the guest bedroom. I hope to remedy that situation soon and I've been going back and forth between DIYing another headboard and buying one.

I've DIY'd several headboards in the past and it can be a pretty quick and straightforward process if you keep the design simple. An added bonus is that you get to choose your fabric, making it a completely custom piece. Y'all seem to be into making your own headboards too, considering that the one I made that's currently in the master is one of my most popular posts ever!

In other headboard-making adventures...last summer, rather than DIY from scratch, I cheated and bought two very inexpensive ones from Walmart and reupholstered them in an adorable patterned fabric for a room in my parents' river house (read all about that here and see the finished room here). Boy, was that project a breeze!

This time around, I'm toying with buying a new one for our master that's ready to go right out of the box, but the DIYer in me is protesting a little at that idea :). To appease my DIY side, I'm probably going to reupholster the one in the master and move it to the guest bedroom.

So! Where do we go from here? Find some upholstered headboard options, of course! As per usual, I'm always trying to keep things on a reasonable budget, so I started to take a look at what my options are for upholstered headboards under $300. There are a surprising number of good lookin' ones out there in that price range. Check these out:

I'm going to mull these options over for a bit and I'll be sure to keep you updated on the decision! Thanks for letting me brain dump here on headboards today. It's kind of fun to share my thought process on "house stuff" every once in awhile!
