Diy wood headboard tutorial,simple wood projects hand tools,delta 6 jointer/planer model 37-190 - How to DIY
My sister, Caitlin, wanted me to make a unique rustic wood headboard for the master bedroom.
Hold the template on the wall in the bedroom and patiently wait for you sister to decide the height she wants the headboard to be.
Use the chains to bang the headboard and hammer the sides of the screw to leave some grooves. Attach the other side of the french cleat to the wall studs and hang your headboard on the wall!
You want to make sure that your wood rounds are completely dried out, or you’ll have a little mold situation on your hands.
So, it takes a little planning, but once your rounds are dried out, this is a really easy tutorial!
You want to make sure that the background is dark so that anything that shows between the wood rounds will blend in with the dark bark. We used Liquid Nails and put a generous amount onto the back of the wood and then pressed it firmly back into place.
We had planned to just glue them, but decided since this is a headboard we’ll be sleeping under, we wanted those babies secure!
With a headboard, I liked the idea of a still rustic, but cleaner appearance where any remaining dust or anything is sealed in.
I am really excited to share this tutorial on how to create a rustic wood headboard with you because it caused quite the buzz on Facebook and Instagram. Start by creating a template for your headboard out of the cardboard box (flattened and opened up.) You can freehand curves, or use a string and tack, or round objects to help create your curves. I just got a free headboard and now you make me want to make my own but I'm sure my husband won't go for it, we have enough projects to tackle already!
