headboard, complete.

with 7 comments

The photo frame headboard project for the guestroom/office is complete. I’m pleased with the final results, but it was not as easy as I hoped. You cannot just use packaging tape to stick all the frames together and hang it up. You should really attach each frame with wood glue and a clamp. Take this advice and save yourself a headache, minor marital discord and fingers that don’t feel like fingers.

headboard, complete.

BTW, this project cost about $36. $1.99 per frame x 18 and I printed out the photos on my home printer. The individual frames are held together with packaging tape, clear gorilla glue and cut up some cardboard boxes.

  1. This looks amazing! Every IKEA project I have ever tried has left me with paint in my hair for weeks, blisters on my poor fingers, and a few newly invented bad words. I’m enjoying your blog…but I’ve had to keep myself from going out and shopping for new and exciting inspiring objects of desire!

  2. Glad you are enjoying it, Jill! I do wish all my friends would start blogs. It is fun to be a voyeur. I hope that does not sound too creepy. Hehe.

  5. Wood glue + mini clamps. You do each frame one at a time and you are good to go. It is time consuming, but you’ll save yourself a whole lotta heartache, so it’s worth it 🙂
