DIY Burlap Headboard

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Supplies: 3 yards of burlap
 57" x 40" Plywood for full size bed
Queen Size Batting (2 packages)
Picture Hanging Kit (D ring hanger)
Nailhead Trim Kit (this is optional and I ended up not using it)
Mallet (Only if using nailhead trim kit)
Staple gun and staples

Layer the batting over the front side of the plywood only and begin stapling

Fold edges over one another and staple

Once all the batting is in place measure and cut the burlap to fit the plywood and begin stapling it

When everything is stapled measure where you'll place the headboard on the wall and screw in hangers

Place hooks in wall and then the headboard is ready to be hung

Hang your headboard
