Here's my entry.  This STUPID easy!  Grin  I just cut a crapload of 8 inch squares out of a bunch of jeans and made a blanket of sorts.  Just sewed them together, nothin' fancy.  Then I took a peice of plywood the size I needed for the headboard and stapled some batting around it and then did the same with the jean blanket.  Bolted it onto the  frame of the bed and VIOLA!  instant headboard.
If you'll notice in the pic, I ran out of squares so I had to sew together some scrap and then use my 8 inch template (made from the back of a notebook) and cut more squares.  My son loves it!

A design doesn't have to be complicated to be really nice. I love it!

Thanks! I'm thinking it needs something.  It's a bit plain but that's the way DS likes it.  It needs some rope trim or  eagle feathers or some junk like that.  Neither of us are navajo art fans but we kept "happening" into really cool stuff
A) MIL brought us back really cool dreamcatchers from Oklahoma
B) I got that paint on the walls (2 gallons) ( Ralph Lauren)  for like negative free.  I got it as cast off at the home depot ($4 per gallon) and then got an INSTANT REBATE of $8 per gallon!  They ended up giving ME $8 back! LOL
C) I got the bed in a bag for $5 at Linens and things on clearance

So I actually made $3 decorating his room.  I'd almost decorate in Barbie for that price!  Grin
And now the headboard,, also essentially free.  Gotta love it!

Yes, I love it, too!  The design of it makes me want to put buttons on it (pin backed).
