Inexpensive, Easy, Great Looking Headboard
While sprucing up the guest bedroom I was looking for a quick, easy, cheap and great looking headboard idea. I didn’t find any inspiration online that I wanted to execute on but I did find a box of click together, glueless laminate flooring in the basement that the previous home owners left behind and knew it would work perfectly for what I needed.
For a double bed it only took 8 pieces, about half of the box and no glue, nails or cutting. I literally just snapped the pieces together. The whole headboard rests on the floor and is held in place by the weight of the bed. For more depth and a little something extra I added 1″ X 1″ ledger boards on the back and threw an extra set of Ikea LEDs behind it for night-time ambiance. You could also mount it higher on the wall on a ledger board for a more dramatic look.
You can purchase this product or similar products at most home improvement stores and I found the same product at Home Depot for $22 a box. Cheap, quick and great looking. My kind of project. Here is the final product.
As always, if you have any questions on how I did this or need advice on making your own, just holler! Thanks for reading and remember, today’s ideas become tomorrow realities.
