Upholstered Head Board: Complete

So I’ve been trying this new thing . . . it’s called starting something and and actually completing it– I think it works.  I posted the other day about my inspiration and my progress of making an upholstered headboard on a budget.

Here’s the finished product:



It’s not perfect, but it was a great way to get the look for less . . . what do you think?

    I found your blog through my girlfriend in Utah. She linked me up here in California. You are back East. Don't you just love this blogging world? I think you are doing an awesome job. Very talented and you have given my girlfriend and I some great ideas. Although our respective kids are all grown and moved out. But we do have grandkids and can pass these ideas along to out daughter-in-laws. So FUN!

    Love, love, love this! And your pictures look awesome. You'll have to share where you got the bedding. It looks great.

    Hi Kim! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the awesome comment! You won't believe it, but I bought my bedding at Walmart, about a year ago, it's by Better Homes and Gardens-(I believe they are still selling it). I'm working on getting a canon rebel for x-mas so I can take REALLY good pictures, but we'll see if Santa comes through with one, lol! Thanks again!

    Hello – I found your blog thanks to Brandi's post. I looove your bedroom, its so airy and fun without being too feminine. The headboard is fantastic, every time I see a DIY headboard, I think maybe I can do it… I will be following your blog – you have wonderful inspiration here!

    Hello! I am following you know. Clicked over from the comment you left me on my blog. I barely got my feet wet on yours, but I love what I am seeing already. Your son's room is awesome and I am loving the headboard. Your room has a very sophisticated feel. That is what we are going for when we get around to doing ours.

    Fantastic job!!!! I also made a similar style headboard with my hubby (pop by my blog to check it out if you have a moment).But tell me truthfully – how much do you despise nailheads now?! I'm pretty sure they are the worst little buggers in the world!!! Although, they do make things pretty, I'll give them that!Take care,Christinadesigningbynumbers.blogspot.com
