Since it will be easy to renew the fabric according to your whims, his promises to look through the years in style. Welcome to creativity! Before you start, note that the dimensions given in the following steps correspond to the manufacture of a head for a double bed of 1.37 m (54 in.). Make sure to adjust them as needed.

Step 1:

Adjust the blade of your table saw to a 45 ° angle to make the supports of the headboard. Place a timber of 5 cm x 10 cm (2 in. x 4 in.) flat on the deck, then cut it along its entire length by penetrating the saw blade to 2.5 cm (1 in.) edge of the board. Repeat on a second timber. Cut four pieces obtained a length of 1.50 m (59 in).


Step 2:

Also by using the table saw, cut a plank of MDF 71 cm x 188 cm (28 in. x 74 in.). On the longest side, draw lines at 15 cm (6 inches) top and bottom of the panel. Center two half-beams below this line. Using a drill with a drill of 0.3 cm (1/8 inch), practice five drill holes in preparation for fixing the planks on the back half of the board of MDF.

Step 3:

Using screws of 3.8 cm (1 1/2 in.), fasten the two half-beams horizontally behind the MDF board. To do this, orient their points down and accolez their narrow section against the panel.

Step 4:

Next, determine the location of the headboard on the wall. Attach it the other two half-beams, making sure to first calculate the distance they needed to fit into those of the headboard. Be sure to install them pointing up, screwing their narrow part in the wall.

Step 5:

Cut the foam padding on the same dimensions as the MDF panel, 71 cm x 188 cm (28 in. x 74 in.). Spread hot glue on the front of the board, then place the foam there.

Step 6:

Place the board of MDF on the fabric of your choice and cut the fabric by adding an excess of about 5 cm (2 inches) on the perimeter.

Step 7:

Attach the fabric to the headboard in the stapling on the back of the board. To form corners without unsightly folds, fold the fabric in the manner of wrapping paper. Check frequently if the fabric is taut over the front panel before attaching it permanently.

Step 8:

Hang the headboard to the wall by nesting half-timbers, as shown in the photo-cons.
