Lately, I've a ton of projects going on at once. About a month ago, my friend, Deb, and I made a upholstered headboard. I actually cut out the design myself - bring on the power tools! I don't know what it is but a saw make me feel powerful - strange but I liked it:) Once the design was cut out, we cut 1 inch foam with an electric carving knife (hard to find these days!!). We cut it 2 inches from the wood boarder then wrapped with batting. I wanted this nailhead trim so we went around the foam border with a staple gun to flatten the batting so the trim would lay flat. It worked! I was using the nailhead trim with every 5th hole that's a nail. Easy and straight! But, it took FOREVER to get the trim the mail! Finally, it was here today and I couldn't wait to finish the headboard.
Looks amazing! It'll be hanging on the wood soon. Saved about 500 bucks making this for a king size bed!!
