DIY Headboard

Update: This project is finished!! Check here to see our final DIY Headboard.

It's only when I'm sick does the bed becomes a haven of lovely books, warm milk, and toasty comforters (and snotty kleenex and throat lozenges, if we're being honest).

Here are a few of the styles that I've been perusing:

And, to refresh your memory, this is what I have to work with:
