How to Make a Hanging Headboard

1. It cost under $100.00

2. This one is sized for a queen size bed

3.  The slides are a little out of order so start around the 5th photo or so.

4.  The hangers in the photo are WONDERFUL and easy to use.

You don't mention the size of the panels in your video. Please advise on size

Help!  I watched the video but didn't catch what size your wood boards or foam is?  Do you have measurements for the materials you used?  Thanks in advance!

I got it at Lowe's. I'm going to run to the studio and see what it is, hold on.

O.K., I'm back. It's called HANGMAN Picture Hanging System. They come in different lengths and strengths. This one is for hanging something up to 75 lbs. and it's 6" long. It comes with a little level so you get it straight. Hope this helps.

The hardware you used is exactly what I am looking for!  Can you tell me the brand name so I can look for it in my area?

I just stopped at Lowes Home Improvment to look at my options (it was before I saw your blog and knew a product like this existed) and they couldn't come up with a good solution.  Where did you purchase the picture hanging system?

Thank you!

This is my first time coming across this blog and I already love your stuff! I was SHOCKED when I saw this headboard cos it's super similar to one I had designed for myself... and I even have used that same fabric before for other things in my house! Crazy! I am definitely gonna start following your blog now!
