OrangeYouBold: DIY headboard made simple
Hello beautiful people. I am almost finished with the room makeover. The project is a simple and very inexpensive solution for a headboard. You can find a sheet of paneling in your local hardware store. This project is fairly simple and will require a sheet of paneling, 1×4 pine boards, stain, miter saw, nail gun and level.
Measure the width of your bed frame and also measure from the floor to the top or your mattress. I decided to make the headboard 32-inches tall so there was room to hang a painting above it.
I had the paneling precut in the hardware store. I then used my miter saw to create a crisp 45 degree cut at the corners to frame out the paneling.
The paneling can be flimsy, so I cut a frame for the front and back. I then placed two boards on the back to make it sturdy.
I stained the wood frame and attached it to the wall.
If it isn’t in your budget to buy a new bed this is a great way to dress up a bed.
It was topped off with a set of twinkle lights by my daughter. You can definitely turn drab into fab for around $30.
