Another upcycle but this time a bit more ambitious is ScavengerChic headboard. The rusty roof shingles pictured above were turned into the headboard pictured below. See how it was done on Hometalk.

Our final DIY headboard doesn’t come with a tutorial, I’m afraid, but I just couldn’t resist adding it to our little roundup. Plus, I think it would be super simple to make. Doilies stretched in wooden embroidery hoops, wired/glued together, attached to a branch, tendrils of trims added to said hoops for a positively magical look. Spotted on @spaces2538 on Imgrum.
