In an effort to spruce up a basement apartment bedroom, we constructed our own version of a padded headboard.
This room has no windows. The cheery pale yellow on the walls and warm flooring helps cozy up the room, but the plain wall behind the bed needed help.
Here’s an abbreviated version of what we did.
Start a with 5/8 sheet of finished plywood cut to fit a double size bed. Select some trim for the edges. This makes up the main part of the headboard.
We cut another piece of finished plywood in this design to mount on top of the main square piece.
