Happy Tuesday friends!
Hope you guys had a great weekend. I am really excited to show you the WHOLE bed I built for my sister. I shared the Queen Platform Bed several days ago, and now I am here to show you the upholstered headboard we made to go with it.
You can find the full plan for this headboard HERE at Ana’s site. This is one of the easiest builds I have done and I would love to share a few money saving tips with you!
For my back board I used 1/2″ MDF. I just had the nice man at Lowe’s cut it for me to Ana’s plan size to save me time.
For my foam backing I used this mattress topper from Wal-Mart. It is only $10… Whoop!
I cut it down and attached it to my MDF like this…
Here is the batting I used.
Pottery Barn uses linen for their headboard. I feel like you can achieve the same look for much less cost going with canvas drop cloth. I used this $5 one from Lowe’s.
Stapled to the board…
Before attaching my side pieces I stained them first. I used our ver favorite stain for this bed.
Here are my boards drying…
After attaching those boards I attached the side trim and top and stained them after attaching. Want to see it all finished??
Hope you like it!
It was so much fun building it for her!
Many of you ask us questions about tools all the time. We are so excited to share a new tool with you later in the week! We will also be giving one of them away to a reader! Stay tuned for that ;-)!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
It would make my day for you to pin this and share it below ;-)!! Have a great day!
