How to Build an Easy Headboard in 2 Hours with No Special Tools | Do Not Disturb This Groove on Remodelaholic.com #headboardweek #diy

Hello Remodelaholic readers! My name is Brandi and I blog over at Don’t Disturb This Groove. I’m a wife and mother of 2. I love to create pretty things and decorate my home on a budget. After renting for years my husband and I purchased our house 6 years ago. I enjoy making our house a home. I love the challenge of DIY projects.

We stay busy making changes to our home. For the past few years we’ve enjoyed updating our kitchen cabinets, giving my son’s room a new look and most recently, creating a relaxing outdoor patio.

My husband and I wanted a new headboard to brighten up our room without breaking the bank. With our limited DIY skills we created an easy headboard that fit our room.

To construct my headboard, I purchased moulding from Home Depot and had it cut to size. I have a Cal-King bed so I used two, 47 inch pieces for the sides and one, 71 inch piece for the top.

I used our old television box as the base for the headboard.

I covered the box with snow blankets, purchased on clearance from Joann’s after the holiday.

I stapled the snow blanket to the box before I covered it with burlap. Once the burlap was centered I flipped the box over and stapled the burlap to the back side of the box.

After staining the molding, I attached it to the frame using liquid nails. I allowed it to dry overnight before I moved it to my bedroom.

It’s kind of plain, but I love the simple look of the headboard. It was easy to make ourselves and didn’t cost us a lot of money. We’ve had it in place for over 3 years now and it’s held up great.

I love the details in the moulding.

I chose burlap because the neutral color and natural texture blend with any style comforter I choose.

      1. You never disappoint Brandi! GREAT project! I love the neutral cover, I think it would match wonderfully with my honey wicker:) Thanks for sharing…

  2. Oh Brandi, you never disappoint with your beautiful projects, but this one takes the cake!!!! A TV box? That is thinking “with the box,” lol! How gorgeous and what a great price. Top notch my dear!!! Jane

  3. Wait! I have to comment again – snow blankets? SNOW BLANKETS? How ingenius and an incredible bargain. Between the tv box and the snow blankets, I don’t know which was a cooler idea! Let’s settle on both. Awesome! Jane

    1. Jane, thank you so much for both comments! I was amazed that the TV was a the perfect size for our bed. The snow blankets were so inexpensive after the holiday; too good of a deal to pass on! So glad you enjoyed the tutorial.

  4. Brandi that is awesome! And the possibilities are endless! A nice pink damask fabric with white moulding would go nicely in my daughter’s room! Thanks for the DIY tutorial!

  5. Love this idea! I want to make one for my son, but he’s in a rental and can’t make holes in the wall. How did you attach it?
