Well I think I originally did a post about a year ago saying I was going to redo my son’s room. Here I am today to tell you, that it’s still not quite done…almost but not quite. It’s not like it has been anything super hard to do or super expensive, I just procrastinate things. Today I’m sharing with you the first sneak peak – the DIY Carriage Bolt Headboard we made.
I love carriage bolts and how industrial they look on shipping crates and other things, so I knew I wanted to do something a tad different than the popular palette pieces you have seen around pinterest.
We took a few of the 2 x 4’s we had laying around in our backyard and I had the hubby cut them all to the same length.
He attached them all to 3 – 1 x 4’s. The 1 x 4’s are what we used to attach the headboard to the bed frame.
I decided not to stain or paint the headboard once the hubby was done with it, I kind of like the raw wood next to the light wood storage he has on each side of the bed.
Then I busted out the hot glue gun and my ruler and glued all the aluminum buttons on to my headboard. Viola! They look like carriage bolts!
