DIY Light Up Headboard
Today we are teaming up with Valspar and their Love Your Color Guarantee to share our latest addition to Elsie’s guest bedroom: a light up headboard! We wanted to create something unique and playful for this room in her home. We were inspired by marquee signs and wanted to create that feeling but in our own homemade way. We’re not exactly master craftsmen, so we kept our design simple and enlisted a little help from our dad. Here’s what we did: First we built a headboard. Next we used a projector to trace the word onto the bedframe. Next we planned where to add all the holes for the lights to shine through. Now drill your holes. Once you have drilled all the holes sand and clean off the surface of the headboard. Once your paint is dry, it’s time to add the lights! We just love how this headboard project turned out! SAFETY TIPS: We spoke with our local fire department to double check the safety of this project.
