kind of obsessed with my new apartment and the beautiful sea foam (my favorite color) tiled fireplace so it was the first thing I decorated after moving in!

5  dresser area in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by ModernDayDauphine on: September 18, 2012 07:18:16 PM

I absolutely love my mirrored dresser and I got it for a steal at TJ Maxx along with the lamp on top of it.  I used a sponge and some gold metallic paint to soften the black on the dresser and added embellishment to the lamp.  I painted the tissue holder, picture frames and tray to match my room using purple and the same gold metallic paint that I used on the dresser. The two large panels on either side of my eiffel tower print were cupboard doors I got from a garage sale and painted to match.

6  Tufted Headboard Tutorial (pic heavy) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by ModernDayDauphine on: September 12, 2012 01:11:50 PM
 As a college student myself, saving money is a huge concern and as a result I've learned to DIY nearly anything so when a friend called me up and asked me if I could make her a headboard I was up for the challenge! Step one was buying all the supplies. Here's what you'll need:



3/4 inch plywood cut to the size and shape you'd like your headboard
enough 3 inch foam to cover your board completely
batting
fabric (enough to cover your headboard and make buttons)
a button making kit (available at any craft store)
upholstery thread
upholstery needles long enough to fit through the wood and foam
spray adhesive
zip ties (a great tip I got from www.schuelove.com)
a staple gun
a drill

First things first you'll need to measure and drill your holes. These are the spots where your buttons will hold the fabric in place. I did rows of 5 and 4.



The next step is to cut the foam to the size of your headboard and use your spray adhesive to glue it down.



Next you want to lay out your batting and place your head board foam side down on top of it.  Cut your batting so that it can reach the back of your board, pull tight and staple it to the back.



The next step is to follow the instructions on your button making kit and cover your buttons with your fabric.  This is pretty simple and mindless but does take a while so if you can get someone to help you with this while you're doing the first steps.  Now is where it gets tricky.  Stand up your head board, take a drill bit one size smaller then the one you used to drill the hole and use it to push through the foam from the wood and make a hole.  Now drape your fabric over the head board and take your embroidery needles and come from the wood side, through the hole and poke a hole in your fabric. Take one of your buttons and use your embroidery thread to tie it to the eye of a zip tie.  Now pull the end of the zip tie through the fabric, the whole in the foam and the wood.



Now take a second zip tie and thread the first through the eye of the second with the fabric, batting, foam and wood between it. Play with the fabric so it pulls evenly and then tighten the zip tie as tight as you can. When the first row is done the back will look like this:



And the front will look like this:



Repeat that through every hole and you'll get something that looks like this:



Now the last step, pull the fabric tight and staple it to the back the same way you did with the batting.



Now you have your headboard!



It may seem like an overwhelming project but all in all it was fairly simple.  With shopping for supplies and assembling the entire board the whole project took about nine hours.  I hope you found this helpful!

I made this years ago for my very first apartment but never posted it.  Hope you like it.  It has swarovski crystal beads hanging off the letters and the rest is all paper.
