Lack Headboard


Materials: Lack Table and Jansjo led lamp

Description: Had a bed without a headboard and didn’t know what to do with it. In the mean time, my daughter needed a bigger bed and that was when I had a idea after seeing some hacks on this web site.

I bought 5 Lack tables and glued them together. Used the legs to reinforce the back side with some metal plates and screws.


The interior middle table was filled with leg leftovers. All glued with “Pattex no more nails”

On the top of the bed I attached two led lamps for night reading.

Attached the headboard to the bed with four screws.

    Thanks Carlos for this brilliant hack! I did my headboard without the lights, but doubled the legs on the back side, so it’s like a 4″ shelf, wide enough to put flowers on them. I’m thinking about adding mini shelves on the sides to store paperbacks (maybe Ribba, cut and stuck back to front?).

    Its a normal bed. It has 1.40m x 2.0m

    I love it, it looks like something that you can buy at a high end store. Question what size of bed is that
