Bedroom Bonanza

Headboard, Game Wall and Storage come together for a unique football room.

Hut 1, Hut 2 Headboard

Create a stunning game day chalkboard headboard that not only shows of your style but provides ample space to plan plays and keep score of the Sunday afternoon game.

You will need:
  • Recycled hollow core doors 2 (24x80)
  • 4 flat metal mending plates
  • Molly bolts (4)
  • 1 quart black chalkboard paint
  • 1 quart semi-gloss latex paint Behr Marquee Torch Red
  • Football player mylar stencil
  • Push pins
  • Blue painters tape
  • A Wagner FLEXiO 3000 paint sprayer fitted with the iSpray nozzle and lined with a plastic bag liner
  • Painters fabric drop cloth


In a clean and ventilated work space hang a drop cloth and sweep excess fabric on floor. Place doors on top of fabric and lean against wall. Load iSpray nozzle with black chalkboard paint. Spray doors from left to right holding the sprayer 3-5 inches from the surface of the door. Spray doors completely, including the sides (move spray nozzle to vertical setting to easily spray sides of doors). Let doors dry and repeat coat if necessary.


To add stencil simply pin design to door with push pins. With the sprayer front end loaded with Torch Red paint spray an even coat over the stencil with the Wagner FLEXiO iSpray nozzle. Remove the stencil and let design dry thoroughly. Once dry attach doors together on back with flat mending plates and then affix to the wall with molly bolts.


Add a graphic wall design that is unmistakably football inspired and feel like you kicked a field goal.

Spray the wall green working in a smooth left to right motion beginning at the top of the wall. Paint entire wall and let dry thoroughly.


With a pencil and ruler measure out yard line marks on wall. Begin in center of wall and mark off a 4 inch vertical line that spans the wall top to bottom. Place frog tape to the outside of each pencil mark and wide painters tape on each side of the line (This provides a wider spray border and some relief for the frog tape as it is close in color to the wall.) Measure three feet to the right and left of each tape mark and draw another line. Tape each side of line and continue until wall space is complete with lines.


With the detail finish front end spray each line from top to bottom with white paint. Let dry and remove tape to reveal crisp yard lines. To add yard line numbers simple tape stencil number to each side of each line with painters tape and spray over stencil. Remove stencil to reveal yard line numbers.
