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!

    The URL listed does not work, do you have a corrected version?

    So I copied and pasted the link for the headboard and it went to a sex site. Checked the link again and put it in by hand and still went the same sex site. Had Chinese or Japanese writing on it. For sure NOT a DIY headboard instructions and material list?

    May I please have the correct link please?? 😊
