There is a super simple way to make a custom DIY headboard with a few items from IKEA and The Home Depot. It is cheap, easy and won’t take you much time. This headboard consists of a large peg board, IKEA flooring tiles, and 2 IKEA ALANG wall lamps. This is a great DIY project if you want to be creative and don’t want a normal store bought headboard.
AWESOME EASY DIY CUSTOM HEADBOARD
WITH IKEA LAMPS AND FLOOR TILES!
Step 1: First purchase a sheet of pegboard that will fit over your size of bed.
Cut to size if needed or let it overlap a little on each side for a different effect.
You can purchase a sheet of pegboard that is 4ft X 8ft at Home Depot.
NOTE: Paint the pegboard your desired color before applying the floor tiles.
Step 5: Purchase (2) 200 lb. French Cleat Picture Hangers with Wall Dog Mounting Screws.
This is overkill but will be perfect for attaching your custom headboard to the wall above your bed.
These are long enough to go completely across the length for attaching a headboard.
Step 6: Attach the wall hangars to the wall making sure to attach into the wood studs.
Then hang your finished DIY IKEA headboard in place making sure it is centered and level.
