DIY Striped Headboard

>> Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Remember when I used to make stuff all the time and post it on this blog? Well I occasionally still find the time to make stuff, finding time to actually post it has been more of a challenge. A while back I pinned this headboard with the intent to make one for our bedroom. Last weekend I finally made it (thank you Presidents Day).

Here are a few shots of the process.
if you are wondering, no, my pillows do not have shams...still working on that.

Cost Breakdown
Fabric- $20
Plywood- $13
Wood Screws- $2
Egg Crate mattress pad I used instead of foam (flat side out) $14
Batting- left over from chair project $0

Pneumatic staple gun and air compressor- purchased for the chair project, also came in handy for this project.
Jigsaw- bought this at home depot for $30, so far so good.

I thought about adding the piping like the one on my pinterest board...but I will probably just leave well enough alone. Total time spent on project, including the trip to Home Depot, 3 hours. And you know, I kind of love it more than the chairs that took one billion hours. Funny how that works out.

Love it! I made a pair of headboards in that same shape for my girls' room. Love the way the stripe plays it up (mine are solid). Nice graphic statement on that wall!

I just found you at OHHAPPYDAY - I loved the print pillows and kid's bedrooms but stopped at the headboard. I'm about ready to do one and love yours. You are SO bold and gusty with the stripes! Fantastic! Gina at willowday

How did you hang it on the wall? Or did you bolt it to the bed frame?
