reclaimed queen headboard

Submitted by Jodie on Thu, 12/31/2015 - 08:01

this was a super fun afternoon project! I used the specs for the Queen size headboard, and they were bang on. no modifications needed. i did reinforce with some screws from the back, as well as I used a 1x3 vertically in the centre of the back of the headboard, which i used to give extra stability to the horizontal pieces. i secured each horizontal board to it using 1" screws from the back, as my boards were not quite flush and I am a bit of a perfectionist! lol
