You mentioned that you screwed the slats into place but I can’t find anything about screw size. This project was born because we needed a headboard, we already had some fantastic oak barn wood and we were ready to build something that was meaningful to us. I’m not sure the exact dimensions off the top of my head (and the bed is in storage at the moment) but those sound pretty close. On carpet floors the 4×4 blocks are going to leave a massive dent in the carpet that will take forever to spring back if the bed is removed.
Luckily this awesome tutorial from Sarah Torrence of 508 Restoration & Design for a salvaged barnwood headboard landed in my inbox, and was just too pretty to pass up.
Due to their size and the amount of use they receive, headboards can be intimidating, even if the form is fairly straightforward.


We wanted ours staggered, so we just placed the boards on top of each other until we knew where our cuts would be. Start by determining the size of your actual headboard (without legs) and chalk this area out on the ground.
Because the thickness of our barn wood was varied, we used the shims to make sure the front side of the headboard was fairly flush. We added several extra coats of spray near the bottom of the headboard where our sheets would be. The head board in the first image is stunning-so natural and I love the way it looks like flooring! Sarah had demystified the process and given us a great starter project for anyone looking to give their bedroom a bit of that rustic, organic feel a perfect quick and easy refresh for fall.


Remember to lift the bed up and remove these prior to relocating the bed otherwise the nails will tear the backing weave of the carpet and create a run. I have been bugging my husband about trying a DIY headboard project with me for months and am so excited that we found one that we can both agree upon~not too girly and shouldn’t take us more than a day or so!
I continue to have more and more calls from individuals wanting to build their own headboards, tables, etc .
