What You Need

Instructions

  1. Measure up your existing bed frame. The headboard should be slightly wider than your mattress, and high enough for you to lean your head against it while sitting up in bed 
  2. Decide on the shape of your headboard, be as creative as you like, or go for a classic rectangular design.
  3. Purchase your plywood, fabric and foam filling. Be sure to allow for at least an additional 20 cm length and width for your fabric, as you will need to wrap the fabric around the foam and board.
  4. Draw and cut out your headboard template on butchers paper, then trace the template on the plywood using your pencil.
  5. After tracing the template, cut the plywood using a  jigsaw. Remember to always wear protective gloves and glasses.
  6. Cut your foam to the same shape as your headboard
  7. Using Selleys Kwik Grip Spray, stick the foam to the plywood.
  8. Begin attaching the fabric and batting over the back of the plywood and using a staple gun.
  9. Trim excess material and batting with scissors. 
  10. Attach the bottom part of the flush mounts to the wall and into the studs as wide as possible within the width of the headboard.
  11. Take the headboard away and drill the holes for the mounts and attach facing down. 
  12. Lift the headboard onto the wall mounts to secure
