I Wanted some plain fabric for the headboard since I switch out my comforter so much. I chose a tan, rough cotton fabric that was $3 a yard. Can't beat that. (sorry about the rotation of the pictures. For some reason they won't stay rotated after I upload them.)
|You will need a Staple gun, fabric, batting and foam depending on how plush you would like the headboard.|
|Laying the headboard front side up, place your foam and batting in place and glue or staple to keep it in place as necessary. I first laid the fabric face down and ran a line of staples across the bottom.|
|Again, sorry about the rotation. Then I flipped the fabric over right side up and I had a nice clean edge at the bottom. Flip over your whole headboard so the fabric is on the ground and the back faces up.|
|Pull the fabric tight as you staple around the remaining 3 edges. I did the top first, then the sides.|
|I took the remainder of the the fabric and rolled it, then hot glued it around the edges so the staples wouldn't scratch my walls if the bed moved.|
|Flip it over and admire!|
I think it looks great. I would also be cute if I stamped a pattern on it to match my pillow cases. But I think I will just leave it plain for now. :) I also have a footboard, but I don't want to put it on my bed.
