1. a piece of plywood cut down to 48" x 65"
2. MDF, cut into two 5" wide/ very long pieces.
3. more MDF
4. a jigsaw
5. extra screws
After cutting out the shape in the plywood and MDF, Nate screwed it all together.
Next we cut the foam and attached it with spray adhesive. We left the edges foam free so that it would be easier to add nailheads (as soon as we order them). How about that really advanced saw horse we were using....or kitchen table, really they are interchangeable.
Whew, I am getting tired just thinking about all that work we did. Next step: lay foam side down on batting, pull taut, staple.
At this point it was well past 10 pm and we had been working on this headboard for almost 12 hours... disappointed that our little project would leak into Sunday we went to bed....NEXT DAY: pull taut and staple technique with fabric.
Ta-da! You must wait to see a picture of it in place until the bed gets its pieces of flair.
