DIY Beadboard Headboard

One half sheet of beadboard stained and trimmed out with molding and voila... a DIY headboard!

I used a nautical rope molding for the beach themed bedroom

I centered the beadboard on the wall and nailed it directly to the wall, finding the studs, with trim nails. I then nailed the trim to the beadboard, caulked the nail heads with wood filler and dabbed a little stain over them to make them disappear.

Soooo inexpensive... and I love the look!

  2. You are so clever and it looks absolutely beautiful! It's been killing me to not be able to do any fix-ups like that around the house but I don't really want to do anything until we move. I mean if & when we move, lol. But girl, you are making some definite progress...

  7. I wish I could incorporate a little beadboard into every room in my house! I love what a great casual, cottage feel it gives to whatever room or area it's in. Great job!
