so, about a week ago we woke up to a crashing sound...one of our picture frames had fallen down, luckily not on anything valuable. (like our heads) i muttered something to rory after taking down the other two pictures: i want to make a headboard....i saw it online.....looks pretty easy....ZZZZZZzzzzz.
surprisingly, i actually remembered my sleepily made plans the next day, and decided that's what i wanted for my birthday! so....voila! here is my birthday present from rory! (thanks hun!)
still looking for new bedding, so excuse the poorly staged picture and wrinkled duvet cover. har, har. the room used to look like this.
i got the idea here, and pretty much copied it, but i did make the panels long enough to (mostly) hide behind the bed.
the panels are 36"x 20", if anyone's wondering, and we have a queen-size bed. i used about 2.5 yards of material to cover it. we also got an awesome staple/nail gun to add to our collection of tools!
one thing i learned was to staple around the edges very closely so that it doesn't bulge. ours did a little bit, and i might go back and fix it but for now i am too lazy.
the total cost for the project was about $65. not too shabby, i think!
what do you think?
