#tbt DIY: Serena & Lily Pondicherry Headboard for $100

This here is one of my favorites, and the one that's been all over Pinterest for the past two and a half years (specifically, the picture of Trevor using the jigsaw - sorry babe).

We desperately needed a headboard for our bedroom, and our budget back in June of 2011 was only around $100 for the project. Between Home Depot, and Jo-Ann Fabrics I was able to find everything I needed.

The great thing about this DIY is that you can choose any headboard shape you want, draw half of it, and use a big piece of paper to duplicate it. This way, even if you're a little off on the shape at least it will be symmetrical.

I may be thrifty with headboards, but not when it comes to sheets. I wouldn't trade my Schweitzer and Yves Delorme linens for anything in this world. They are heaven to sleep in.

We've switched up our bedside table situation since I originally posted this DIY. We now use my great grandmother's T. Anthony suitcases and my great grandfather's steamer trunk.

They are great for storage but not great for keeping things organized on top, so I added little boxes, and antique Chinese plates as coasters.

The end! Hope you enjoyed this #tbt DIY, brought to you by the cat who would not go away.
