This is a step by step free plan for making a full sized headboard that looks like a barn door. This is a great rustic look for a kid’s bedroom. A good beginner’s project as it is both fast and easy.
The well detailed captions follow the whole project from supplies to completion with a total lumber cost of $60. The tools and other supplies used are noted through out to keep the project on course. The pictures include the measurements for each cut for effortless reference. In the comments the builder answers questions for how to make this headboard in queen and king sizes.
