If you have one of these cheap folding screens and want to upcycle it, why not make it into a custom headboard! It’s easy and you can do just about anything your heart desires.
Step 1: Spray Paint~ I used a more expensive paint to avoid having to spay so many times.
Tip: Take your time when you spray paint, it’s best to do in light layers.
Step 2: Add metal hardware on back of screen to avoid the screen to fold. Then Hang on the wall behind your bed. Either drill a hole through the wood or add hardware on the back.
Tip: Resist adding your decor to the screen, as this is large and awkward to hang and you don’t want your hard work to get ruined.
Step 3: Collect and create the decor you want to add to your screen. Use Velcro to affix items to your board.
Tip: Don’t be afraid to add a few things to start then add over time, as this is a large space!
I made my own Fishing sign by hot gluing store bought pebbles onto letters! Use shells or seaglass as well! The Bait bag is actually an old clothes hanging pin bag! I hand painted the words and picked up vintage wooden fishing hooks to add to the bag.
My son collected stickers, shells, and driftwood and I picked up the signs, handmade fishing pole and the clothes pin bag from a yard sale, and the Pottery Barn pin board shark
