    I wanted to know what size was your peg board used to make the headboard?

    1. Corey Willis says:

      Hi Avvonda, The peg board is as big as you want the head board to be. The best thing to do is to tape off the wall with painters tape where you want the headboard to go and then use it to get your dimensions. I can’t recall where we purchased the peg board, but Home Depot would be my first recommendation. Often they will cut it for you as well. Thanks for your interest!
