White Wood King Bed – Making and adding your own headboard is a simple and fun way to personalize your bed. With only a few materials, you can transform the look of any bed. By using any type of fabric or pattern you want, you can tie your header to other design elements in the room or turn it into a piece of the statement. Another advantage of making your own headboard is that you can change the fabric on it to match any era or style you want in your bedroom.
Buy a piece of plywood that is at least 80 inches wide. The typical solid wood king bed frame is 76 inches wide, and you want your headboard to be slightly wider to prevent you from looking too small compared to the mattress. Choose the way you want the headboard to go, and get the cut of plywood in a hardware store to match the specified dimensions.
Purchase the foam batting and fabric of your choice from a craft store. Be sure to cut the fabric at least 2 inches larger than the plywood to allow room for folding and stapling. Lay down the batting foam on the floor, and allow it to settle for a few minutes to completely flatten out. Spread a thin layer of safety foam adhesive over the entire king headboard surface of the plywood board.
