DIY Wood Slat Headboard

DIY Wood Slat Headboard @themerrythoughtMy room has been mostly neglected since moving in here. I just threw a mattress on a bed frame and did no decorating or anything in there. It was basically just a tiny white room with a pile of white blankets. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I had originally planned to make this headboard last year for my room in NY and just never got around to it but out here my painfully plain room was bumming me out so I just went for it! I love the warmth and texture it adds to the room and itโ€™s so much cheaper than every other headboard that I looked at โ€“ plus I like the look of this one way better!
DIY Wood Slat Headboard @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-Twelve 1โ€ณx2โ€ณx8โ€ฒ furring strips (Go through and make sure theyโ€™re straight before buying! A lot of the ones in the store are crooked.)
-Miter saw (or most any saw would work honestly)
-Tape measure

Watch our video below for step by step instructions on how to put it together!

      Not silly at all! I actually didn’t end up attaching mine to the wall because it fit so tightly around my bed frame and between the walls of my small room. You could try a furniture anchor or use a small bracket/corner brace to attach it to the wall or you could attach it to your bed frame depending on what your frame is made out of.ReplyCancel
