I've also seen a version done with wood from pallets - these were free from a local hardware store as the pallets were being thrown out anyway. There was a mention of having to be careful about what treatments the wood may have been subject to (pesticides etc), which is very noteworthy.

Here's the link to where they described the process. I think it looks great.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

14. You can stay green on a tight budget. This headboard is made from repurposed boards, and the pillows are sewn from old pairs of jeans!
Becky Harris added this to Your First Apartment: Where to Begin?
STEP FOUR: MAKE A HEADBOARD (OPTIONAL) Here's an example of pillows sewn from old jeans and a headboard made from repurposed used boards.
Becky Harris added this to Design Greener: Using Reclaimed Wood
This reclaimed wood headboard sets the tone of the room (special repurposing bonus: the throw pillows are sewn from old jeans).
Becky Harris added this to Ideabook 911: A Lounge for the Boys
4: VINTAGE TOUCHES: Throw pillows are a great way to add vintage touches. You can get creative about what they are made from, like jeans, jerseys, old wool sweaters, etc.
Becky Harris added this to Rustic Chic
Reclaimed boards form a striking rustic headboard.
Scheer & Co. added this to Create a Stellar Studio Apartment
Vignettes or visual partitions help delineate space and give the illusion that you have more room than you actually do. In this design the "bedroom" is clearly defined by the statement headboard, while a dining area sits nearby, anchored by a pendant light and artwork on the walls.
