This was one of those genius ideas I got out of nowhere & thought… why has no one ever thought of this. But turns out, people have cause when I googled room divider headboard, 51 images popped up. Regardless this is one of my favorite pieces and was super easy to create. Cheap room dividers can be sneaky, this is one of those home accessories that I think have kind of slowly died out but have no fear, craigslist is your friend and I guarantee if you check it daily even hourly for that matter you will have a nice inexpensive one in no time. Mine kind of just fell in my lap as my neighbors were moving and getting rid of a lot of items so it was free. Originally I was planning on moving into a studio apartment and would use the divider to hide my bed behind but lucked out and found a nicely priced one bedroom so there was no need. I decided to repurpose and use as my headboard and it turned out beautifully.

As useful as this was it was tacky as hell so I decided to make it a little more flattering to the eye.
