DIY Wood Headboard

I never knew that a headboard could be THIS expensive! Couple hundreds or even over a thousand dollar for a cal king size headboard… There is no way that we’re going to spend that much on a piece of headboard. Thank goodness Mr. handyman has his way to achieve what we want. Small project No.2: DIY Wood Headboard

We’d been sleeping on a cal king mattress on its platform metal. There was a big gap between the mattress and the wall where my pillow often fell down to the floor. I once tried to use a lot of cushions stuff into the gap. It looked terrible and the cushions fell to the gap easily. Since little en now rolls and plays on our bed every night after the shower, daddy decided to expedite the headboard to seal the gap.

We first borrowed the idea from Pinterest. We attempted to up-cycle an old door to a new headboard. Charles spent a whole afternoon trying to get rid of the paint and realized, “Heck, I might as well just buy new plywood and make one. That ought to be quicker!”

Just like the gigantic mirror that he made a few months ago, cut → sand → stain → nail:

Add two supported legs

Hundreds bucks saved right there!
