A Custom Removable DIY Wood Block Headboard for Cheap!

4 Materials
7 Days

This awesome headboard is totally custom, totally DIY, removable and cost less than $80! No way? Yes way! You have got to see this!

Just finished our new wood block headboard and it's darn spiffy! You too can create one!

After planning and plenty of math, I started with a sheet of plywood cut to size at the store and two 4"x4" posts. I stained the posts whole first, then stained the plywood.

Next up: I cut tons of blocks. Made a huge mess. It was fun. I cut three sizes: 1/2", 3/4" and 1". Come read all about how I designed and built this over on my blog, Flipping the Flip at humboldtartdept.blogspot.com!

Ran into a little staining trouble but nothing a ton of sandpaper, time, electricity, and wood conditioner couldn't fix.

Some Liquid Nails to glue all the blocks on and....

....bingo! We have a new headboard!

I left a few blocks unglued so we could screw the headboard directly into the wall studs. Some dots of self-adhesive velcro and nobody will ever know! Easy to put up, easy to remove! A custom headboard, all for less than $80! Come read all the details about this project and many more on my blog, Flipping the Flip, by clicking the link below!
