General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1

Start by building a basic frame. This headboard is designed for a queen size. You can alter the size by adding to the width for king, or subtracting from the width for twin and full sizes.

Step 2

Now attach cleats to sides.

Step 3

And then to front, attach additional boards. Take your time to make sure the ends match up perfectly.

Step 4

Finish off the end with some blocking ….

Step 5

And then the front. Can you see all the spots for moulding?

Step 6

And now the header. You can also use screws here.

Step 7

Fill in the back panel. You could also fill in with an upholstered panel!

Step 8

Now add moulding! There’s alot of flexibility in the type of moulding you choose.

Step 9

Here is a picture of the molding we used for this project.

Step 10

And a close up of the finished project.

Finishing Instructions:

Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
