Hey Kids... this is my first post and I'm purty excited about it!!!
I fell in love w/ the headboards on urban outfitters.com and decided to try my hand at it and create one for my own full size bed.
I found this already padded piece at a thrift store. It's actually a footboard for a queen, but at 30 bucks I was willing to give it a go!
I found some nice linen at Jo Ann's plus some AMAZING buttons that by boyfriend picked out for the tufting. They are distressed silver w/ lion crests w/ a banner that says "honor" on them!!!
Here are a few picks of the process so far...
The headboard as it came from the store.
Here it is covered in fabric.
A close up where I stapled the fabric to the armature.
A couple shots of how it looked after I tufted it.
Further plans involve adding either some sort of metal cross between the tufts. I have yet to construct the actual rig that will attach it to my bed. It will hang off the edges a bit but I think it's going to look really great in the end.
I hope everyone likes it!!!
I'd like to apologize in advance for any poor quality pictures... hey this is my first post after all!!!
