Materials: 2x MANDAL headboards, 1/4" plywood with a finished surface, 2" x 4" lumber, at least 8ft long, brackets, wood screws, black paint, wood saw, screwdriver, drill to make starter holes for screws

I like the MANDAL headboards, except for three things:

1. A single headboard looks too short above the MANDAL bedframe.
2. The spacing between the wall brackets don't match standard stud spacing in American homes.
3. The black metal brackets stand out, especially against a white wall.

I fixed all three issues by mounting 2 headboards to a wooden frame with a black backdrop, which is then mounted to the wall. It also left room to place some LED Christmas lights behind the plywood for ambient backlighting.
