DIY Craft: How to Make Stenciled Headboard Art with Royal Design

craftsdecor & DIY

Our master bedroom is pretty much the last room in the house to be decorated. It's really sad looking right now. I'm in the "process" of redesigning and decorating, so there is a hodge podge of unmatched, half painted furniture. But the REALLY sad part of the room is our bed. We have no headboard, so even my pretty bedding just looks sad and lonely without a headboard. We eventually plan to buy a new bed, but in the mean time, the room was CRYING out for help.

I really wanted to create my own headboard, but life has been super, crazy busy. So I had had to scale down and settle for a substantial piece of "art" instead.

How to Make Stenciled Headboard Art



I started by painting my sheet of plywood in a pretty lavender color. Once it was dry, I started using the stencil.

I chose a soft metallic, silvery color for the stencil. This was the first time I had ever stenciled something on this large of a scale; I was a bit nervous. But the grids on the stencil make it SUPER easy to line up and position your stencil to get a perfectly stenciled project.

When I lifted my stencil, I had some imperfections, but those were mostly because I was impatient and didn't wait for the paint to fully dry.

The imperfections were easily touched up. If you take your time and do it properly, you likely won't require any touch up. But you know me, fast and furious! HAHA!

Once it was all dry, I hung it on my large empty wall over the bed. Don't you just LOVE the impact it makes in the room?

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I still need to frame it out and who knows, maybe one day I'll even continue with my plan to make it a headboard!

Have you made your own headboard? How did it turn out?
