DIY FARMHOUSE HEADBOARD
Hi friends, today I am excited to be joining another group called “Best of Farmhouse Friends”. If you love farmhouse decor as much as I do you are in for a real treat. Recently we redecorated the guest room farmhouse style , which lead into redoing the master bedroom in a farmhouse style as well. We decided to start with the headboard, since the one we had was for a queen size bed, we have a king size bed, which also comes with a king size expense, so cutting back where we can is important while staying within our budget, it was decided that we would have to come up with some sort of DIY farmhouse styled headboard to accommodate the size of the bed. I will be sharing how to take a folding screen, metal strapping, overlays and recycled bed piece and design it into a DIY Farmhouse headboard for a king size bed.
When I think of farmhouse decor mixing wood and metal speaks farmhouse to me. What about you? While cleaning out the garage, spotting the leftover folding screen we used on other farmhouse projects around the house, I knew it would be the perfect width and height due to the high ceilings in the bedroom.
- 4 Folding screens
- 4 Onlays
- 6 Metal Strappings
- white spray paint
- 120 grit angle sand sponge
- top piece to foot board
- wood glue
Screw metal strappings between folds of screen at top and bottom.
Glue Onlay’s at top of each screen
spray paint white
distress with 120 grit sand paper
Place footboard top piece onto the top of folding screens (this piece had a cut out, so it slid on perfectly) you could build your own or just leave it without.
Note: on the back side of the screens 2 X 4’s were added to each end to keep it from the wall.
The pallet picture frames are not quite finished yet I still need to add some printable quotes.
They will be hung above the head board. If you missed the post on how to make pallet wood frames you can see that here
I am going to go a little off the subject here for a moment.. One thing I have learned over the years, no matter the cost, is NOT to cut back on linens . The Perfect linens are a must when it comes to comfort and a good nights sleep. As most of you know I only share what I believe in or have experienced myself. These sheets came just at the right time since we are in the middle of redoing the master bedroom. I couldn’t believe it when they arrived, they were the perfect color and baby soft! Once the headboard was in place and the bed was made, I couldn’t wait to take a nap on them…yes I take naps…I literally slept for 5 hours! These are the most comfortable, softest sheets I have ever slept on! I do have to say they are the best of the best! Smoothest all-cotton sheet Long-staple Pima Cotton. 500 thread count.
