I'm extremely proud of this project I just finished, and I wanted to share it with you all!

I took this couch(on the right):

Removed the fabric:

Karate chopped it in half:

Foamed it up:

Began tufting:

Finished tufting:

Sewed up side pieces, stapled them on:

(Please excuse the messiness. I was in the middle of a big project;))

And ta da!:

I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I do! Yay tufted headboards(made from old ugly couches)!

I'm loving the "finished tufting" pic. That fabric - you could make whole couches awesome like that!

Gasp! So genius!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!

as much as it pains me to see such a beautiful couch chopped apart, the headboard is stellar.

That is awesome! And I'm guessing it keeps your head warm - away from the outside wall!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

This looks soooo comfy.  What a great job, and I love the fabric you used, so elegant.
