Old Fence Turned Into a Headboard

Last summer I found a free listing on Craigslist for a torn down fence. I snagged it and have used it for a TON of projects. I had the upholstered headboard piece, but it just needed a little something. It took me only one evening to chop up the old boards and install them to frame out the upholstered piece.

Got a question about this project?

    I like the look. Did you make the upholstered part of the headboard?
    The lights look great. Did the wire covers come with the lamps or did you purchase separately.

      @N C Yes I made the upholsered part with a piece of wood, batting, fabric, and a staple gun-super easy! The wire covers did come with the lamps and I found them at Home Depot.

    Gorgeous, just fabulous. I can not afford the light..... but want one anyway.

    Beautifully done! I really love this! My niece has some old sections of fence that she and her husband recently had to replace, and now it looks like she's going to loose a few to my 'cause'!! Thanks for sharing!

    This is just amazing! It would be better to make a headboard instead of purchasing. Great Inspiration.
