Diy headboard


Hello
I'm making a DIY headboard where I've removed the existing wooden slats on the headboard and have made a cushion (on mdf) to fit within the wooden frame.
What should I do to hold the cushion board in place?
It's flush with the back of the original wooden frame.
So at the moment the frame is empty with the cushion board now fitting into it.

Re: Diy headboard


Install a couple of rails in the frame, then screw through the rails into the M D F, but not through the M D F.

That will hold the padded board to the frame, and not have any screw points to poke the back of your head.

Re: Diy headboard


1X6 clear (no knots) pine.

Divide the height of the space by 3, this will give you where to place the rails "on center" .
