In this article, we offer you a brief guide on how to make a headboard with your own hands.
The plan of the back is presented below. These sizes are designed for a double bed (King size, 1. 9x2 m). We pay your attention that all sizes on the scheme are specified in inches; to translate them into centimeters familiar to all of us, you should multiply by 2. 5 (1 "= 2. 5 cm).
You will need:
From the accuracy of this stage of work for and the success of the whole project on making a headboard with your own hands.
You need to cut the following blanks:
From the 5x10 cm board:
From 5x7 bars. 5 cm:
From bars 2. 5x5 cm:
Drill holes for oblique joints, using a tool for angle drilling.
Assemble the headboard elements, fastening them with screws. At this stage, the square and knowledge of the basics of geometry will be very useful.
Sand the surfaces. We used the Rockwell Sonicrafter Sander belt grinder for this purpose.
Prime the surfaces. We applied FastPrime2 primer with a brush and mini roller. After priming, your product will not look like you imagined at the very beginning of the project ... Do not worry, everything is still ahead.
This stage of work (and therefore the entire project as a whole) is better to plan for spring / autumn, but not for winter. We do not recommend you to perform paint work in a residential, poorly ventilated area.
Apply two coats of paint. We used the white semi-gloss paint Olympic Zero VOC Premium. It fits well on the surface and, most importantly, does not smell.
Attach the finished headboard to the frame of your bed using bolts, nuts and washers (we used what we could find in our garage). The bolts must be long enough to pass through the wood of the fastened elements.
On this, our master class on creating a headboard for a bed with your own hands is finished. If you have completed all the steps with us, you just have to enjoy the result of your work!
