Attention all Super Hero Fanatics! This one is for you!
My husband built this headboard at the request of our youngest son…ahem – college-age youngest son! #theynevergrowup But I have to admit, it is pretty awesome. Especially when you turn the lights out… “LIGHTS OUT! Now you wanna get nuts? Come on! Let’s get nuts.”
3/4″ plywood – we purchased Top Choice for a smoother, clean paint finish
2 x 4 x 8
2 1/2″ screws
My husband sketched out the headboard to fit a queen size bed.
With careful measurements he transferred his sketch to the plywood
Using a jigsaw, he cut out the shape. He said “the curves are tricky but sanding is your best friend.”
He painted the entire surface with Olympic “Black Magic” semi-gloss paint.
For the legs, he cut the 2 x 4 to a height so that the “eyes” would sit above the mattress. He then secured them to the back of the headboard using 2 1/2″ screws.
