Create A Headboard Using Mural Transfers

You can create a headboard like this in any size (twin, full, queen, king, ca king) using a Wall Dressed Up Wrought Iron Mural Transfer. This is a fun project and you can create a headboard like this using our wrought iron elements! This headboard was created using only one wrought iron order for $68 (we even had leftovers)! This is a fraction of the cost of a “real” wrought iron headboard. It’s a great value and a really fun project.

14 year old Lindsay had redecorated her room in beautiful shades of steel blue and brown. All that was missing was a headboard! We will show you pictures from start to finish of her headboard project. This entire project took about 2 hours from start to finish. Lindsay’s beautiful bed looks complete now that she has a “headboard”!

This is Lindsay! Here she is measuring the length that she wants her headboard to be!

She cut the wrought iron pieces apart, leaving the backing paper on and did a rough layout of the design she wanted for her headboard.

Lindsay measured to make sure the medallion was centered and would be above the her decorative bed pillows and marked center with a light pencil mark. She taped up a few pieces to get the height correct and then started rubbing the medallion onto the wall!

This shows Lindsay rubbing the mural transfer off the transfer paper onto her wall. Only the thin as paint artwork transfers, making your mural look hand painted!

Here she has a little help continuing to rub the elements on the wall. Light pencil marks and the use of a level make sure that the design goes up straight and even!

The finishing touches….

Here is the finished project!
