If you got stuck in making your bedroom looks more interesting, adding the padded headboard maybe one of the most effective ways to go. It will simply make your bed look fresh and uncommon. So, if you have agreed to this notion, then now the question will become: how to make a padded headboard? Let’s find out how folks.
a. Get the area where the padded headboard will be placed measured for its height and also length. Then, get plywood base purchased based on the measurement that you have made. Make sure it is 1 inch for the thickness.
b. Now that you already have the measurement, get the foam cut based on the measurement that you have created. Get the wood attached with foam using craft glue. Leave it to dry.
c. This is if you want more padding get the cotton stuffing rolled over the foam, Then get this covered carefully with the chosen material and then get it folded under around the edges. Be sure that you have smoothened out any lump or bump.
d. Next thing you should do is to decide on a pattern before the nailing part. If you ask me about the proper pattern, then I would answer the diamond pattern which is a traditional style which will remain. Get a piece of paper which is as large as your headboard and then get lines drawn on angle with around 9 inches among the parallel lines. After that get parallel lines drawn at the opposite angles every 9 inches. Get this sheet placed over the headboard and then get it aligned to the woods edge. After you have done, get the paper ripped off of the headboard.
e. Finally, get the headboard flipped over. Get a nail gun use for securing the fabric to every corner of the headboard’s back. Get the material between every corner secured using nail gun.
