The Headboard for Cheri’s bedroom is done ! Between starting this project, my sudden surgery and actually completing this DIY Headboard, I have no idea how long we were busy with it.

One thing I do know is that everyone who had seen it, even when we were only halfway done, immediately fell in love with it.

When we started building, we never imagined how big, and what a huge impact, this Headboard would make !

We used only one sheet of 2750mm x 1830mm x 16mm SupaWood. And had all the pieces cut to size by our timber supplier. This way it saves a massive amount of work once the pieces are cut.

I pinned a DIY Headboard with built-in lights a few weeks ago, when we only just started my daughter’s room makeover.

One Saturday when she was home, I showed her all the pins I had already pinned and how I wanted to use them.

Either for inspiration only, or to make something similar, yet a bit different.

The first pin which caught her eye was of the Headboard ! She asked me to please make no changes, she would love it exactly as the one on the pin.

We did not install the light switches too low, or too high. I think they are just about right where we have them now – see above pic.

UPDATE – 05/20/15 : Daily Fix (IDEAS MAGAZINE) is in the process of transferring their posts to a new website, therefore the link is no longer valid.  I did get feedback from their FACEBOOK page, which states this as an excuse. Click on the Facebook Link, should you also wish to leave a message for them.

I do apologize sincerely for this unacceptable behavior and will be keeping an eye on the new site in order to get the link back as soon as possible. Unfortunately, because I wanted to give the original site the credit, we did not keep our notes – my bad !
