A friend of mine is having issues with her dining chairs banging up against her wall. She doesn't really want a chair rail and her second idea of putting padded fabric decor thingies on the tops of her chairs just doesn't sit right with me.
I have this idea to make something like a padded headboard to put in her wall in place of the artsy mirror she has now. It would be slightly padded to provide buffer for the chairs and act as an art piece in her dining room. We may just use really pretty fabric for it to match her current decor or we'll use something plain and paint it to match.
What do you all think? What would I need to build it? Any idea of cost? I think it will need to be about 5' x 4' to work as chair protection and artpiece.
Any thoughts, tips would be much appreciated
