RE: headboard shelf

Here's the link for the project. Hope this helps. I did a search for "Headboard Shelf" and this came up. ;-)


RE: headboard shelf

I made one once, it was really easy. Took a twin bed headboard and cut off the legs to the bottom of the headboard. I painted it all funky, then I put a piece of 1x2 across the bottom of the board as a support for the shelf.

Then I added a 4" wide piece of pine board that I attached to the 1x2. I also put a few L brackets on for added support.

I added a 12" mirror tile to the headboard for something extra. I put screw hooks in the back and hung a picture wire. I use this shelf/mirror as a little decorative shelf that I put pictures and light knicknacks.

Sorry, but this is the only pic I have of's on the left side of the hallway.
