DIY Antique Window Headboard


We have made a lot of progress in one of our guest bedrooms lately & one of the
projects that we have been working on is this DIY antique window headboard.
I found these windows at a local thrift store for a price that I could not pass up.
I loved that they were all similar and knew right away what I wanted to do with
them. I also loved all of the flaws in the windows & didn’t want to change them
in any way. I think they look gorgeous just as they are in all of their original
beauty. This bedroom is quite small & the bed we have in the room is quite large.
So we needed a low profile headboard that made a huge statement…



This headboard was quite simple to hang & only required a few steps
to make sure it was secure & ready for guests. I am not going to lie,
having windows hanging above a bed wasn’t my safest idea ever so I wanted
to make sure things were as secure as possible.


>> We taped off the wall in sections the size of the windows to see how we wanted
the windows hung & how we wanted them to be spaced on the wall.
>> We then secured any loose parts on the windows, we wanted them to be shabby,
but not fall apart on our guests 😉 Different steps for each window.
>> We attached picture hangers on the back of all of the windows that were appropriate
for the weight of the windows. One picture frame holder for each window.
>> Using a tape measure, level, & screws we hung the windows as level and straight
as possible. This is hard when you are working with rustic materials because
there are flaws as you can see, but we tried to keep them as similar as possible.
>> We put nails in the wall behind the windows to secure the windows from being
able to move back and forth if anyone were to bump them. Also this step straightens out
your windows if they are hanging a little crooked.


We polyurethaned the windows so that the paint would not chip off of
the window. It would also be wise to caulk the glass in your windows
if you find that any are loose. We have actually had guests stay in this
room already & I was so excited to ask them the morning after they
slept in the room if the windows bothered them at all or if anything.
They said they were perfect and didn’t effect them at all.

What do you think of our DIY antique window headboard?
I can’t wait to show you the rest of this room when it is all finished.
It’s just a little facelift because this was one of those rooms that
was thrown together 3 years ago with items from our old home &
remained the same until now. Stay tuned for the rest of the room!

    I wish I would have known to put poly on the window when I got it as i think I lost some chipping paint while waiting for somewhere to hang it. Can I ask what product you used? A spray or brush on? Thx

    The double chin for example is a very common complaint. This becomes life threatening when blood
    vessels become blocked and vital organs like the brain or heart are deprived
    of blood. The electric current flows out of the treatment tip, into the subdermal layer and bounces off
    a return pad on the patient’s back. Those seeking to correct problems
    such as scarring, pigmentation, sun damage, age spots and the like should choose the all-new non-surgical Fraxel
