diy (giant) upholstered headboard + how to attach it to the wall

If you caught my GUEST BEDROOM REVEAL COLLAB WITH HOME DEPOT, you probably saw this statement headboard I made custom for the space.

Today I'm breaking down the how-to so you can recreate this piece and add some (literally) massive impact to your space.

Check out the how-to video below and don't forget to pin this post for later.

In this tutorial video, I cover how I designed the piece, the process for building out the frame, the methods and products I used to upholster, and the reliable + brilliant way I hung it up on the wall.

Hello Headboard  🛏

All in this headboard cost about $300, which for a custom piece of this size is a steal.

About 1/3 of that was spent on fabric, another chunk went to buying the foam (which is surprisingly pricey) and the rest went into materials like lumber, upholstery tack trim, batting, and spray adhesive.

This headboard was created to work for both two XL twin beds OR a king size bed, which means it couldn't be secured to a bed frame since the two beds would need to be able to move — pushing them apart or together.

I decided to mount this headboard to the wall using a french cleat. This method is super easy to line up and is stout enough to hold super large pieces securely. Check the video for details on how to make a french cleat.
