Lady strings lights above her bed – the result is so awesome

Cutting out the excess is rarely easy, whether we're talking food, electronics, TV or work. But these divine do-it-yourself projects will make letting go of a traditional headboard easy as pie.
Your bedroom may not be very big, and that's okay. Most of the projects below don't take up much space at all. The best part? Rather than spending hundreds on store-bought pieces, you'll have a part of your room (physically) that will forever be a source of pride and happiness.
