Headboard Plans

Building with free headboard plans is a simple way to add architectural interest to a bedroom without making permanent or structural changes to the room.

Headboards can be freestanding, mounted to the wall or attached to the bed frame. Any type of wood, including plywood, can be used, and they are often paired with paint or upholstery for a custom look. They are great for apartments and small rooms.

It is easy to customize a headboard to accommodate any size bed using free headboard plans. Whether you have a standard sized bed or an unusual daybed, there are styles and designs to fit your lifestyle and decorating taste. Kids and adults both appreciate the instant decorating impact a headboard provides, with only a little work and investment from the DIY craftsman.
