Simple Headboard


Materials:

  • 2 – 1″ x 6″ x 96″ board
  • 1 – 1″ x 3″ x 96″ board
  • 12 – 1 1/4″ screws
  • wood glue
  • sandpaper
  • stain/top coat
  • remnant carpet or felt

Cut List:

  • (4) 1×6 @ 37 1/2″ long
  • (2) 1×3 @ 30″ long
  • (2) 1×3 @ 12″ long

Cut the 1×6’s into 4 pieces that are 37 1/2″ long.  Cut the 1×3 into 2 pieces that are 30″ long and 2 that are 12″ long.  On the 30″ pieces drill pilot holes for screws to attach each of the 37 1/2″ boards.  Apply a little wood glue and attach the 30″ pieces with 1 1/4″ screws to the 1×6’s about 4″ in from each side.  Leave a small gap between planks for a more defined plank look.

Drill pilot holes about 3/8″ from the ends of the 12″ pieces.  Use wood glue and 1 1/4″ screws to attach the 12″ pieces to the ends of the 30″ pieces.  The 12″ pieces (feet) slide between the mattress and box spring to stand the headboard up.

Attach a small remnant of carpet or felt with glue/staples near the top of the 30″ pieces to avoid marring the wall.
