Fabric Covered Headboards
Fabric For Covering A Headboard
I think one of the best ways to update your bedroom's soft furnishings is with a fancy new upholstered headboard.
I have seen a few posts around the internet that outline how to make one and they look surprisingly easy.
Currently, my headboard is a big brass number, but I cover it between the posts with different bedspreads, throws or even scarves depending on my mood.
If for some reason I no longer had my brass bed, I'd definitely make my own headboard.
This seems like such a budget-friendly way to infuse new life into a room without the mess of painting or rearranging everything.
Your new headboard could be anything from a heavily textured fabric that exactly matches your wall color to a loud print that contrasts like a piece of fine art. The sky's the limit! With the low cost of fabric remnants, this is a very cheap and chic project.
If you're very crafty you could embellish even further, say, by adding contrasting ribbons, lace or buttons
While an easy and inexpensive thing to make, this idea could be reworked in lots of ways to suit your creativity!Andrea's Response
I like to sit up in bed at night and read so much prefer a padded headboard to something harder.
Whether you choose to cover a wooden frame with batting or wadding and then cover with fabric (actually, perhaps an artist's canvas would make this even easier) or are re-covering an existing padded headboard to give it a new lease of life a staple gun is all you really need.

in my home with a co-ordinating bed sheet from the same range as my duvet set for a really nice look.
