Let’s face it, most bedrooms are hidden from any visitors and sometimes neglected. Because we live in a one bedroom apartment in Queens, the bedroom always becomes additional hanging space when we host but honestly, we haven’t done much to the bedroom since we moved in…7 years ago! It was time to do a mini makeover!
We created an easy slat headboard using pre-cut pine wood boards from Home Depot!
It was pretty easy to put it all together and we we’re able to screw it right into our bed frame!
Sandpaper 120-grit & 220-grit sandpaper
1-1/4” flathead screws
Pre-stain wood conditioner
Cut List: (standard queen size bed)
Pine Wood Board (3): 0.75” x 4.5” x 6’
Pine Wood Board (2) 0.75” x 7.25” x 6’
Back Legs & Support:
Pine Wood Board (3): 0.75” x 3.50” x 4’
The whole tutorial is on HGTV Handmade but basically, you screw all the pieces into 2 back legs and one support in the center!
Watch it all come together in the video!
