I had a single red satiny curtain from my old house and it had no where to live in my new house. So I took it, part of a mattress topper, and a piece of wood and made it in to a headboard for my room. It's super easy. Just take a piece of wood that is about the size of the headboard you want and cut a cheap mattress topper to fit it. A mattress topper is way cheaper then most big lengths of foam in the craft section Then you wrap the fabric around the front and staple it to the back. I recommend two people for this job and don't pull too tight or you may end up with weird lumps and have to pull out staples... ask me how I know
The artwork is something I made, the pillows are from Target, and the white floofy rugs are called flokati rugs. It's actually two rugs side by side because two small rugs are cheaper than 1 large and you can put them in separate areas later if you want They're from Overstock.
That's the before. I think the new headboard really ties in the rest of the room and pops against the black wall. AND it was actually super easy to make too!
