A lot of people came to me and asked me how to make an upholstered headboard. Indeed, create your own headboard is a very great idea most people should do, especially as we speak about how you spend time making your house looks great. There is no need for you to worry asking about the question like how to make an upholstered headboard since it is very simple job. The only thing you need to do is to match the headboard with décor of any room. Through this project, you could do almost anything you love, range from picking the color, fabric, shape up to the way you spend times to attain overall style.
To undergo this project, you need to prepare few things, such as plywood, foam, batting, upholstery fabric, Kraft paper and pencil, jigsaw, sandpaper, magic marker, staple gun, tape measure, utility knife, and flush mounts. Once you have prepared all things needed, you could start the project by getting the right measurement of the bed size. Ensure the headboard is a few inches wider than the mattress. You have got the size and then, take Kraft paper and draw a template there. The design is ready, trace the shape onto the plywood, and cut it by using jigsaw. Take times to sand any rough edges. What’s next?
By using the template, lay the foam down in the ground. Magic marker comes in handy here. Use the knife to shape the template. According to the shape of headboard, cut the batting and fabric. Pick a clean surface and lay the fabric front side down. Once there, place the batting, foam, and plywood in the same time. The layers should form into four, which are fabric, batting, foam and plywood. You just need to use staple gun right now.
