We had a bed frame for the queen-sized guest bed, but no headboard, and so after a trip to the fabric store and the Home Depot, I decided to try my hand at making an upholstered headboard.
There are plenty of tutorials out there for DIYed headboards (check them out here, here, & here), so I won't bore you with the details, but here's how it turned out:
It's plush, sturdy for leaning up against (it's backed with plywood, not just a frame), and adds a burst of color to our yet-unpainted guest room. I need to find some bedding that complements the red headboard - for now, we've got some turquoise Garnet Hill sheets on there.
So jazzy! Just beautiful.ReplyDelete
Very nice!! Hope you post the room when you finish, your guests are lucky people. I always love when someone decorates with red. The material you chose is gorgeous, great job!ReplyDelete
Love it! I've often thought about doing a project like this. If you don't mind would you share where you got the fabric from? I *heart* red!ReplyDelete
It's from JoAnn... I bought it there this summer, but last time I was there I saw the same pattern in blue, red, & orange!ReplyDelete
I love the fabric!ReplyDelete
