DIY Headboard

One weekend, a trip to Home Depot, and a power drill resulted in a new DIY Headboard where before there was none!
Here's the before photo of our sad, lonely bed without a headboard:
A few quick visuals of how we framed and assembled the headboard - visit for the product list and step-by-step tutorial. Framing out the size of the headboard....
Applying the beadboard backing with some adhesive and finishing nails...
Lots of sanding, and some painting...
The finished product! This was an easy project for one weekend and we managed just one trip to Home Depot - always a bonus!
Beautiful, classic headboard finishes off the bed. And its even sweeter since we made it ourselves!

    I would love to make this headboard, but the link you have sends me right to DIY hair braiding. I can't make it if I don't know what to buy.

    Her links lead to no where ... a site she's closed evidently. Found her on Facebook but there's nothing there either. Darn.
