This weekend, my dad helped me finish up my new headboard project. I'm quite excited. I think it looks great. Now, my next step is figuring out what to hang above the darn thing :) I'm thinking a project with three large frames, some ribbon, and my initials in monogram style or old english style print, more details to come. However, the suggestion box is wide open! So please help me!
If you decide to do this project on your own, shoot me a line and I can give you all the details on the easiest way to affix it to the wall. Which means I'll ask my dad exactly how that all worked.
Warning, I may have gotten a little picture happy, but enjoy!
Cover the foam board with batting to make i extra cushy and soft:
Then, do the same with the fabric, making sure the corners look nice:
Then marvel at your fabric masterpiece. Warning, a dad might pop up from behind there at any time:
Then, affix the upholstered board into the mantel opening:
Install, raising it up on boxes for height, and have your dad pose for a picture because he's been such a wonderful help:
Stand back, take a deep breath and think, "What's my next project?!"
Come back and see me!
