OK, I got that off my chest. On Sunday afternoon, while lounging in bed watching a movie with my husband, I mentioned my idea of upholstering our headboard. He did not say no, so I took that as a yes. I decided to start doing some research and headed over to Joann's Fabric. All their upholstery fabric was 50% off and I had an extra 15% off coupon. I was not really sure what I wanted to do, until I saw the leather like fabrics. It's a white, Whisper White, to be exact, that is very smooth with good texture. So, I bought it for under $20.00.
This is my inspiration.
The style of this frame from West Elm is exactly what I want to do. I love the placement of the nail head and the height is just perfect.
This one from Centsational Girl is my inspiration for color. I LOVE this room. I love the white fabric and the pewter color nail heads. Her tutorial on the nail head placement is great. Although, she used a more natural fabric than my 'leather like', I love the white.
This one from Danielle Oakley Interiors is super fun. It's for her daughter's room. What a lucky girl. She has a super simple tutorial on how to make the frame. I emailed this one to my husband to show him how easy it's going to be.
I am so excited. I just have to get my husband excited too! Ummm, that's going to be fun.
