Once we have the boards removed, we cut them in half, resulting in 10 boards of the same size.

Now we sand all the boards. This is a process to which we must pay and dedicate a lot of attention, since the boards have to be well sanded, without chips or imperfections.

Once sanded, we give them a primer coat. The primer we need is a universal white sealer (they can sell it at any paint store). Once the primer has dried, 12 hours minimum, we apply a coat of paint of the color that we want the headboard, in this case it was painted white. But each one to paint them the color they prefer.

The paint we need to paint the boards is synthetic enamel. They also sell it in any paint store or DIY department store like Leroy Merlin. This enamel can be found in matte, satin or gloss, also here the choice is personal. We let the paint dry at least 24 hours.

Now, once we have the boards ready, it’s time to put them on the wall. For this we need a drill and small spikes or hooks with their appropriate plugs to fix the boards on the wall.
