Today I want to share how Mark and I made our DIY headboard. An upholstered headboard is an easy DIY project that can make a big impact in your bedroom. You can find tutorials on Pinterest showing you how to make a button tufted upholstered headboard, but I decided to keep things more simple and skip the button tufting. And this style is a classic.

SUPPLIES TO MAKE A DIY HEADBOARD
For this next step, I didn’t take any photos. I think I was too excited about how it was turning out and just forgot to take any pictures. Mark took the headboard to our bedroom and placed it behind the bed and I showed him how high I wanted it to be off the floor. Then Mark made legs to the size needed out of 2 x 4 wood and screwed the legs into the back of the headboard. He set the legs in a bit so they wouldn’t be seen behind the bed frame. Since they won’t be seen, we didn’t bother to cover them with fabric.
