With a new semester approaching, everyone is getting ready to move into their new place! Looking for a new way to brighten up your bedroom?? Make your own custom upholstered headboard! It’s much easier than you think! I made my own about two years ago and it still looks brand new! (My 2 year apartment-versary was yesterday!) Check out joanns for a basic pattern, note that this is a great pattern that gives you an idea of how to construct a headboard, but you don’t have to follow it exactly! Be CREATIVE! Give your headboard a funky shape by using a scroll saw to cut your plywood! Tuft using metal studs or fabric buttons! Let your imagination run wild!
