We really wanted a reclaimed wood look in our all white bedroom, and fell in love with a headboard we saw online but was entirely too expensive for our budget. So instead, we used the Ikea Malm platform bedframe in white and use adhesive, reclaimed Stikwood pieces to give the appearance of a reclaimed headboard without the added cost. Altogether the whole bed frame came out to be $250 because we managed to find the Malm bed in the as-is section. Double win!
