West Elm Window Headboard Copy Cat-Queen

We’ve had a few requests for queen sized dimensions of our West Elm Window Headboard Copy Cat

February11 010

Here they are!  All directions are the same as the king size bed (follow them here)…only the cut list has changed!

  • Using 2x4: cut to 55" (horizontal support on very bottom)
  • Using 2x3:
    • cut 2 - 55" pieces (top and bottom horizontal of headboard)
    • cut 2 - 55" pieces (side pieces)
  • Using your 1x2s cut:
    • ten 6.75" pieces (horizontal part of "window")
    • ten 18.5" pieces (vertical part of "window")
      • (the picture shows 20" but this takes into account the other pieces)
    • ten 6" pieces (for top and bottom of "window")
    • six 3.5” pieces (in between “windows”)


Let us know if you have any questions and please e-mail us a photo of your completed project!! 

On a totally unrelated note…what accent color should I use for pillows?  Remember we are pretty boring traditional…

  4. I have dreams of someday creating this bed. I'm tucking the tutorial away. Thanks so much for sharing it! How about navy and white chevron or ikat pillows.

  5. Wow! I'm totally impressed. It's beautiful!

  6. ya!ya!ya! Thank you so much! Can't wait to convince my hubby to build this for us :D

  7. Wow! I am impressed with your skills! You must be so thrilled that the headboard looks so professional!
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment about my laundry room. I always appreciate positive feedback!

  8. Oh - and one more thing...your dog is precious!

  9. Wow! You made this??? Looks incredible.
    Pillows...brown or navy? Or red if you are daring :)

  10. I seriously want to see pictures from anyone who attempts this!! :)

    And why didn't I think of yet pretty...

  11. Yellow & grey is my all time favorite color combo. If you want the accent color to pop, I'd go with yellow, turquoise, or even red. If you want it a bit more subdude, I'd try a soft plum or a celery green.

  12. Thank you soooo much for sharing!!! Such a smart idea and perfect execution!! I'm trying to decide if I can tackle an upholstered headboard or wooden like yours.


  13. Thanks so much for the inspiration and plans. I made mine this weekend and am quite happy with the results!

  14. I'm wondering what was your technique for reducing the size. I'm thinking of reducing it further for a twin frame. Thanks!!

  15. Yellow pillows! It's so hip with gray. I love this headboard.

  16. This is awesome, I asked my dad to help me make this. I have the Ikea Oppdal bed frame in queen ( The width of the bed is 62 1/4, do you think I would need to adjust your dimensions to fit this bed frame? Is there an easy way to do that? lol thank you!
