DIY easy to make headboard

The bedroom is usually the last room that gets a makeover, also in this house. Its just too easy to use it as storage, and that is a shame really.. I wanted to buy a headboard to make it more cozy, but the only ones I could find where very “over the top”, and did not have the clean lines I was looking for. :/ I wanted something simple, but cozy – I might be a tough customer?

This little project took the whole of 3 hours work, and I am very happy with the outcome! 🙂

You will need:

  • Wood trimmings
  • Paint and brush
  • Screws that works with the type of wall you have
  • Screws with hooks
  • Warm-white LED string lights

First find the width and height of your coming headboard. This obviously depends on the size of your bed. A width of 201 cm and height of 170 cm was just right for our bed. Go to your hardware store and buy wood trimmings or similar. The one we used have a width of 4.8 cm and depth of 3.5 cm. We painted the trimmings with two layers of yellow paint. Fasten the trimmings to the wall with screws and attach some screws with hooks at strategic places. Fasten the led string lights to the hooks.

Heads up! I bought these Clinique pep-start on impulse (LOVE the packaging, SCREAMING for me to take them home) – am now addicted. Thick consistency but lots of hydration!
