Re: Need to add headboard to bed


That is two different requests.

Cheapest, is not the best.

Yes, you have the right idea, first step is to pick what you want to add, then ask how to install it.

See you then.

If that's just a metal mattress frame, as Ed said.

There is no rule it has to be attached to the frame. You can attach anything to the wall independent of it. An old door, pad/fabric over piece of plywood, whatever.

Re: Need to add headboard to bed


I made myself an oak headboard last summer as I couldn't find anything decent that wasn't made of wood dust and didn't cost an arm and a leg. I have a Select Comfort bed and frame, and as a result, I had to order the headboard mounting hardware and install it on the frame as there were no attachment points. Once installed, I simply lined up the headboard against the mounting flange, drilled the two holes on each side into the headboard legs, and used long bolts with nuts and washers to secure it to the frame.

Re: Need to add headboard to bed


Every metal frame I ever saw had a mounting plate on each side and the headboard bolts to that with 1/4 20 bolts of the correct length. Padded legs require a cut in the fabric or the padding will wrap around your bit and possibly tear the fabric. Even unpadded fabric covered ones can do that.


You can use fender washers and HH screws with sharp points on the padded ones.

IMO the simplest/easiest way is to just mount the headboard to the wall.
