I'm really, really into the distressed wood look that's been floating around lately, but the hefty price tag goes along with reclaimed wood
I have been on the hunt for the perfect headboard DIY for a while now.
I’ve fallen in love with everything from reclaimed wood to mis-matched frames as headboard decor, but my indecisiveness kept me from committing to any one of them.
Eventually, I decided on creating a headboard from pegboard pieces so that I could change things up as much as I’d like without my walls looking like they’d been attacked by DIY’s. Here’s how you can make your own:
(I used four pegboard squares because we had no way to transport the size we needed in one go, but if you have the means, buying one large piece is easier.)
- Get a general idea of the layout you want, then measure & mark.
- Anchor dry-wall screws to the wall, and then place clear spacers between the wall and pegboard before screwing them in place.
- Continue with the remaining boards.
- Use pegboard accessory hangers to decorate!
