Frame & Panel Headboard
This easy-to-build project is guaranteed to dress up any bedroom. Just pick your favorite style and you’ll have a beautiful, wall-mounted headboard in short order.
All you really see of most beds is the headboard. So why build an entire bed when you just need the part that shows? This project is simple, easy, and you can build it in no time. The headboard is a frame and panel assembly in the simplest form. A few pieces of molding hold the panel in place. And when you’re finished, the headboard hangs on the wall above the mattress. This straightforward design has another big benefit — it’s easy to customize. Besides the solid hardwood version in the main photo, two other designs are included. These headboards are sized for a queen-size bed. But if you have a king, full, or twin bed, it's easy to adjust the length to fit.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
