Tip{py Tuesday…Upholstered Headboard…Check!


I have lots of ideas.  Ideas, ideas, ideas, spinning around my little head constantly.  Which means I am a very good project-starter, and not always such a good project-finisher.  Today, I am proud to say I have finally finished a project that has been hanging over me since long before we moved to this house (ahem, that would make it about, hmmm, 7 months ago?).  The upholstered headboard project.  Had a great idea to make one, bought the fabric and supplies, even went to Lowe’s and had the particle board cut to size.  Then, there it all sat. And sat, and sat.  Finally, a few weekends ago my dear hubby said very sweetly, “It’s time to wrap this thing up.”  I think he was sick of stepping over many, many, yards of upholstery foam in our closet every time he was trying to get dressed.  So, we did it!  I was going to show you all of the steps but instead I think I will share the tutorial that I used.  She does a great job of explaining and showing what to do.  Her blog at www.centsationalgirl.com is one of my faves for sure.  Here’s the link if you would like to check it out.  And here is my finished result:

And here with the bed made up all pretty:

So, happy with how it turned out 🙂  Is it perfect?  Nope.  But I love the fabric, colors, and the fact that hubby and I made it together.  I couldn’t have done it without all his help.  

What are some projects on your “to-do” list?  Please, do share!  Have a good one!
