So, we just moved into a new home, our first home.  

We have a HUGE bedroom, and our little double bed sits on one wall, looking lonely.  We recently noticed that the lack of a headboard meant the wall behind the bed was getting stained by... well... whatever.

I woke up one morning with the idea for this headboard, and rushed out and bought the supplies right away!  I am very pleased with how it turned out - it's all the same wood, just stained different shades.

This majestic thing cost me less than 50$ all told - wood, stain, brushes, screws, felt, etc....

I'm so excited to be able to share it!

I really like that! So it's one solid piece just stained in different sections? And then just attached to the wall? Very cool....

It's four pieces (two 8-footers cut in half) - two stained mahogany, and two "antiqued".  I put felt on the back of each, and screwed them into the wall studs in sections.  The felt on the back gave me the leeway to adjust each board so that it was flush with its neighbour.

Really gorgeous.  I'm currently headboardless and this is a great solution.
