General Instructions

Work on a clean level surface. Use necessary safety precautions. Measure and cut your boards to fit your piece – measurements given are for a perfect build, and you may find your headboard off a tiny bit. So on the trim and top pieces, measure to fit, using the given cut list as a approximate measurement. Use glue and check for square after each step.

Step 1

Legs. Begin building the legs by fastening the 1×2 middle piece to the 1×3 front leg piece, as shown above. To hide your nail holes, fasten for the 1×2 board into the back side of the 1×3 board. Keep outside edges flush.

Step 2

Panel Pieces. Starting on the top, fasten the panel pieces as shown above. The red pieces are 1×4 boards, the blue are 1×6 boards. Use 1 1/4″ nails and glue. Check for square. Hide your nail holes as you did in step 1.

Step 5

Step 6

Top Trim. As shown above, measure and cut your top trim piece. The distance will be the overall width of the headboard at this step. Keeping the top trim flush with the outer leg and the front of the headboard, use 2″ nails and glue to fasten in place.

Step 7

Top of Headboard. Cut the top of the headboard piece 1″ longer than the trim piece from step 6. Mark 1/2″ in from all sides.

I think I might have some

I think I might have some ideas on how to achieve that finish. Distressing the wood is great, and glaze is a MUST but you might want to look into a product called texture putty. It''ve bookmarked your website in my bookmarks to read tomorrow.

Really you just need to find

Really you just need to find another king bed plan on here and see the inside width. Adjust the plan here to accommodate the king. I am an amature but I have already built a Queen headboard from the farmhouse bed plan on this site. It turned out beautifully and it was easy enough. With a straight forward plan like this I can only imagine stretching it to fit a king bed should be easy. Good luck!!!
