My oldest daughter has been begging me for months to make her a headboard, and just like anything else it got put to the bottom of the list. Well I finally got around to making the headboard and wanted to share this quick easy project with you!
First I took the measurements of her bed, she has a twin bed and it measures 39″ wide. I then decided how tall I wanted the headboard to be! My headboard measured 40″ x 30″ I wanted hers tall. I used OSB as the base!
I then used 1/2 thick foam (could have used thicker) and cut it 1/2″ larger than the wood base! ( this makes sure the corners and edges are so sharp)
I then used the fabric my daughter had picked out and wrapped it around the batting.
We made legs from the OSB and attached them to the back of the headboard, however there are hooks that work just as well that you can use to mount the headboard! Why I put it off soooooo long, I have no idea, it only took about half an hour and the cost was minimal!
