Reclaimed Wood Headboard

Reclaimed Wood Headboard

When I was cleaning out the garage the other day, I remembered that I had an extra box of this reclaimed wood. I used it for the wall hanging that I made to cover up the fuse box in our entry way.  You can click here to see that post.

I also had some pieces of trim that I used for the wainscoting in the hallway.

So I decided that since the package of reclaimed wood only covers 4 square feet, It would work to make a headboard for my son’s room.

I started by making the frame for the headboard and attaching it to the wall with brad nails.  I found the studs and made this the width for the headboard. I painted it the same color as the walls, because (you guessed it) I had leftover paint! After the paint dried it was time for the fun part…attaching the wood.

It is a great product for using on walls because it is so lightweight.  It locks together to give it a seamless look.

I would have liked the headboard to be a little wider, but I didn’t have enough trim.

I think I will put wall sconce lighting on either side.  Maybe something like this:

My son was happy with the new look.

Thanks for stopping by!
