DIY Wood Farmhouse Headboard

DIY Wood Farmhouse Headboard

I recently made this simple rustic white farmhouse headboard for some good friends. I hit a few roadblocks along the way, but it turned out nice. This is a great DIY project especially if you need a headboard and don’t want to spend a lot of money on one.

Hey friends! I hope you enjoy this one! I didn't clarify a lot with my mistake on the finish. I used a foam brush and put it on too thick. That was most of my problem. I would recommend Polycrylic instead of what I used. I'll link it below. What would you recommend using? Comment below to help others out.

Daniel Nichols says:

Great work! i've been looking around trying to decide if i wanna build a headboard using pallets or just some store bought wood. Well after watching your video i don't think i wanna use pallets. I really like the way your headboard turned out! THANKS FOR THE IDEAS AND INSPIRATION

Also, I researched polyurethanes amongst all the pros who use it over their painted furniture..and they all suggested Varathane Ultimate polyurethane satin finish …and that’s all I use now on everything…you can even paint or glaze over the first coat if you make a mistake and then put several coats over that..I have to order it online from Home Depot..they don’t carry on the shelves in the store…I think it comes in a 2 quart set.

Lisa Bevill says:

Where did you get that blue deep set angled screw hole thing? Sorry, have seen those before and wanted to get one for hubby for Christmas?!

Matt Rotuno says:

Is this material for a Queen or a King Sized bed?

Jaybony Bisquit says:

Oh and always make sure ypu clean the wood extra good before staining or applying any paint to the wood surfaces.

Looks good bro. However i would glue the small miter cuts on the ends rather than nail them for fear of cracking the peice. Anyways looks good🤘

Ben DeHoag says:

How much did this project cost?

Tom Blalock says:

Where's the materials list? I could have sworn you said there would be a list at the end of the video.

Candace Mcginnis says:

What size does the headboard you made fit…King? or Queen?

Bluebonnet says:

LOVE your idea to sand inside edges of boards. Great look.Thanks.

Cheryl D says:

Nothing stings more than a new product boo boo. But it really looks nice and I enjoyed the video !!! Thank you

Ronald Poddig says:

I really liked the look of that weathered oak. I'm going to be making some coffins for Halloween decorations with some rough cut wood.

Raul Lopez says:

This is awesome!! I definitely want to try out this designs. Is this for a king? Looks like it but can’t tell for sure..?

Kim Rose says:

Beautiful! Love ❤️ it!!
