plain furniture is blank canvas bagging to be embellished. Today's post will show you how to restyle your bed with a simple project: make a custom headboard using scraps from coordinating fabrics.
Let's start with the base! This what you need:
- florist's foam
-1/4 inch plywood
- quilt batting
cut 8-inch squares of stiff florist's foam, 1/4-inch plywood, and quilt batting.
Glue the layers together with the quilt batting on top.
Cut fabric into squares large enough to wrap the foam boxes with at least a 1/2-inch overlap on the back.
Staple the fabric to the back of each square with a staple gun.
Now it's time to assemble the headboard,
cut a piece of 1/4-inch plywood large enough for the finished headboard.
Line up the boxes facedown in your desired pattern, and attach them to each other with heavy-duty tape.
Top them with the plywood, and drill wood screws at 8-inch intervals to secure all the layers.
....and you're done! We promise a little elbow grease will be worth it!
