Tip{py} Tuesday…DIY Upholstered Headboard

Ok, so normally here in Tip{py} Tuesday, I like to post projects that I’ve done or am working on that I feel are worth sharing.  Alas, this week is a project that I plan to do.  It all started when I found an antique dresser that I loved in Bisbee, AZ.  Its purchase led to the selling of our current furniture and redesign of our master bedroom.  Thank God my husband is so sweet, right?  Anywho, I’ve been seeing all these DIY upholstered headboards on Pinterest, etc…and I thought why not?  We were in the market for a new bed too, and we love the new mattress but it needed a headboard.  So, it’s practically like I don’t have a choice, right?  I have the fabric already that I want to use, it’s just a matter of getting it done.  In the meantime, here are some of my headboard muses…

Love the simplicity of this, wonder if I’ll be able to master the art of tufting?

Similar idea for this one, but it looks a little higher.

or this budget-friendly version.

Who knows what I’ll end up with?  But I’m definitely seeing batting, tufting and staple guns in my future.  Oh my.  🙂
