I had been planning on making a headboard for our master bedroom for about a year and finally got around to doing it. Thanks to my mother-in-laws step by step how to, it was actually pretty easy.
I started with a huge piece of plywood.
Drew half of the shape I wanted on a huge piece of paper.
Folded paper in half.
Cut my desired shape out of paper.
Traced the shape onto my plywood.
My husband sawed the shape for me.
I tightly stapled two layers of batting (found at Hobby Lobby) to the plywood.
I super tightly stapled my fabric (found at fabric.com-7 oz duck) to the plywood.
Hammered my nailhead trim kit (found at Beacon Fabric) around the headboard twice.
My husband and I love it so much! We are planning on hanging a sweet rhino head like this one over the headboard.
I also made the grey/white pillows with fabric from fabric.com.
You can see the dresser I refinished and the sunburst mirror I made hangs above it. My sister-in-law made me that awesome grey/white striped blanket at the bottom of the bed. It is even prettier in person.
Here is some art I made near the bottom of the bed, hanging next to another window. The typography canvas idea was totally stolen from someone else. I made it before pinterest so for the life of me, I cannot remember who I got that idea from. Anyone know so I can credit them?
Is anyone else working on their master bedroom? What projects are you working on?
