Using OSB board to make a headboard?

Next time I will use 1/2 inch. I am going to hang it on the wall.

Using OSB board to make a headboard?

I built a perimeter frame from 2x2 and put a couple support posts in the middle and screwed the 7/16 OSB to the framework. Then bolted the 2x2 legs to the bedframe. Works very well.
