Call it recycling, upcycling, reclaiming, or salvaging. No matter how you define it, building furniture out of old wood is a major trend at the moment. In the past few days alone, I've seen a sofa made out of wooden pallets at a chic restaurant and a bench made from wood from a barn's haymow. There are plenty of ways that you can adapt the trend in your home, but headboards are currently topping my list. I've seen so many beautiful uses of reclaimed wood in the bedroom, and even better, many of these projects are relatively easy to DIY yourself. Come along for a peek at some inspiring DIYs (oh, and you can always just buy it readymade, too).

This headboard was created by simply using vintage doors as a headboard.

Palettes can work well in a boy's bedroom as well, as evidenced by this vintage airplane-themed bedroom
