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!
