DIY: Headboard


I have been shopping around at craigslist, ksl, overstock.com and a few others for a nice sturdy, but also trendy headboard. I couldn't find anything that was under $50.00. Everything that was, was really ugly and old fashioned. I decided to make it myself. It couldn't be that hard or look bad. We bought, a piece of 5x8 plywood, a staple gun, Batting, black fabric and just put it together. Both Daniel and I got to work.

This is how it turned out. I was pleasantly surprised, but after watching so many trading spaces, you pretty much get the gist of how stuff is made. I am so lucky to have a handy-man like Daniel..I swear stuff like is so second nature to him. He can fix anything and IF he can't, he sure finds a way to do so.

Here is our pretty bed. Great spread from Ikea. I am thinking of making so accent pillows to go along with the bed. How about turqoise?

Photos to follow.
