Easy DIY headboard for your bed

I made a headboard from the IKEA LACK tables and shelves for my bed.

Item List:


  • 2x LACK coffee tables
  • 2x LACK side tables
  • 4x LACK shelves

Home improvement store

  • 6x iron plate 50mm x 100mm
  • 4x iton plate 50mm x 200mm
  • a lot of screws

Screw the table plates together using the iron plates (50mm x 100mm) and screws.
