One of my first builds - remains one of my favorites 8 years later.
Wanted a large headboard and I prefer to have a hand in everything in my home. Made one for a friend and couldn't resist making one for myself.
The headboard is made with a 5 panel door that I took from a friend's basement.
I attached a double thickness of MDF with brackets and covered the seam with decorative molding. I used a large piece of crown molding across the top.
The headboard is painted with High Gloss Impervo oil-based paint. The headboard can be hung by a french cleat. At one time I actually had this screwed to the wall - with a 2x4 brace along the bottom. This headboard is VERY heavy!
