Doll Headboard

Make your little girl happy this weekend by constructing this sweet headboard to doll up her bedroom.

Frame family photos or favorite keepsakes in place of the dolls for a headboard that doubles as a display case.

Start by having a metalsmith cut a piece of sheet metal into four 31/2x56-inch strips. He can also predrill three holes in each strip, one 2 inches from both ends and one in the center, or you can do it yourself.

Make six 31/2-inch-square wood blocks from any attractive 4x4 lumber. Screw the wood blocks through the predrilled holes of the metal strips using No. 12x11/2 flathead sheet metal screws and No. 12 nickel-plated finishing washers. This creates the top and bottom supports for the headboard.

Drill 56x201/4-inch sheets of 1/2-inch plexiglass to the front and back, through the wood blocks.

Cut the doll shapes from six 12-inch-square sheets of corrugated plastic. Tape the dolls together across their backs. Push the dolls into place through the open ends of the headboard.

Drill a hole in the back of each of the three top wood blocks, place three corresponding screws into the wall studs, then attach the headboard to the screws.
