This is how I made my headboard
Here I am leaving Home Depot with a really nice piece of plywood.
I bought batting and lay it over the plywood. Then I glued it down to the wood using spray glue.
I bought fabric and a foam mattress pad. For my headboard I bought a foam mattress pad for a queen size bed.
I laid the wood with the batting glued down to it on top of my foam mattress pad and fabric.
The layers from top to bottom: Wood, Batting, Foam Mattress Pad, Fabric.
I stapled the foam, and batting to the wood. Then I stapled the fabric to the wood.
Here is a picture of all the layers intact and stapled to the wood.
It doesn’t need fabric on the back as it will be against the wall.
Here is the finished product.
A picture of it with the bed will follow as soon as everything is put together.
