I am so excited as always to share this super easy project. We don’t use bed frame for the safety of our kids. Yes, we still sleep together. Behind our bed is a wall that has chipped paint that I have been dying to cover. I don’t have plans to repaint it since it will be covered by a head board anyway. Speaking of which, today I am sharing my headboard project using flower decorative mat and molding.

4. Let it dry.

5. Glue the mat on the wall using No More Nails and secure it  with thumb tacks. Once dry, remove thumb tacks.

6. Apply No More Nails on the back of the molding. I glued the horizontal molding first then the verticals. Please follow the instruction found at the back of the packaging.

Tips: I used thumb tacks to help the moldings stay in place while the adhesive was still drying.

I have to hold and pressed the vertical moldings hard until it was secured and doesn’t move.
