So let's rewind a bit...a while back my bff, Karolyn (be sure to check out her blog...she is paper "royalty") found a designer fabric store that sold kits to make your own headboards...it came with everything except the fabric and I think a King size was about $175. Not bad...but I am
Ions ago, I found this tutorial on making a headboard that I knew would come in handy someday. I did not bother to take pictures of my process because these instructions were already easy enough. You can check it out at The House of Wood. I did do a couple of things differently...besides the button design and how I attached them was, I omitted the foam rubber and just used a a couple of thickness of batting. I used a little thicker piece of plywood than she showed in her tutorial. I chose to do only two rows of buttons because I knew they were not going to show on the bottom anyway. Attaching to the wall with a French Cleat is pure genius...I was even able to do it by myself. Hubby wasn't home and I wanted that bad boy on the wall!
Over all, I was quite pleased at the outcome!
Whatcha' think? I chose to go with a solid fabric because I felt I had enough going on with the bedroom as it was.
Approx. price breakdown:
Fabric 15 (Home Dec fabric 50% off)
Batting 15 (I did have some already)
French Cleat 15
Total Cost $74
Can't beat that, right?
