Bedroom Headboard3

Materials: Old BILLY bookcases, dacron and a SANELA curtain.

Billy bookcase sides

The sides of a couple of old Billy bookcases that I did not need anymore was cut with a jigsaw to fit the width of the bed (160 cm). They were attached to one another with brackets and screws.

A smaller piece of the rear side of the Billy bookcase was also used. Both where covered with dacron and then a Sanela curtain was attached with a staple gun.

The result – The headboard placed behind the bed.
