Installing a Headboard from Etsy: A Step-by-Step Guide

Introduction: Welcome to my YouTube channel! In this video, I'll be sharing my experience of installing a headboard that I purchased from Etsy. Join me as I walk you through the process and provide some helpful tips along the way.

  1. Choosing the Headboard: After extensive research, I finally settled on a headboard from Etsy that met my aesthetic preferences. I opted to purchase the boards individually instead of as a fully assembled headboard to save on shipping costs.

  2. Unboxing and Initial Reaction: I excitedly unbox the headboard, only to find that the color doesn't match my expectations. I had envisioned a brighter shade, but this one appears dull. Despite the initial disappointment, I remain hopeful as I assess the pieces.

  3. Installing the Headboard: Before proceeding with installation, I clean both the wall and the back of the headboard with rubbing alcohol. I allow them to dry before moving on to the next step.

  4. Cleaning the Wall: Using a spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol, I thoroughly clean the wall where the headboard will be mounted. This step ensures proper adhesion and a clean surface.

  5. Preparing the Velcro Strips: I measure and cut the Velcro strips to the desired lengths, keeping in mind the weight and size of the headboard. I aim to create a secure attachment using a combination of Velcro strips.

  6. Attaching the Velcro to the Headboard: Carefully, I attach the cut Velcro strips to the back of the headboard, following a specific pattern to ensure maximum stability. I press them firmly and give them ample time to adhere properly.

  7. Mounting the Headboard on the Wall: I align the headboard with the desired position on the wall and gently press it into place. To ensure a solid bond, I place heavy books on top of the headboard for 15 minutes, allowing the Velcro to set.

  8. Final Touches: Adding Photo Frames: To enhance the overall look, I decide to hang photo frames above the headboard. Although I make a small mistake during this process, the imperfection is hardly noticeable.

  9. Conclusion: Despite the initial color disappointment, I am satisfied with the installation of my new headboard. The combined efforts of thorough cleaning, precise placement of Velcro, and careful mounting have resulted in a successful DIY project.


Q: Why did you choose to buy the headboard individually instead of as a fully assembled piece? A: I opted for the individual boards to save on shipping costs, as getting an assembled headboard would have been significantly more expensive.

Q: How long did the installation process take? A: The entire process, from unboxing to final touches, took approximately two hours, including the time needed for cleaning and drying.

Q: Did you encounter any difficulties during the installation? A: Overall, the installation went smoothly. However, there was a slight alignment issue with the last board, but it is barely noticeable and does not affect the overall appearance.

Q: Would you recommend using Velcro strips to mount a headboard? A: Yes, Velcro strips are a convenient and efficient way to mount a headboard, especially if you don't want to drill into the wall. Just make sure to choose heavy-duty Velcro strips for added security.
