Do you love reading in bed as much as I do? My former headboards were not friendly to this habit, to say the least. One such headboard hit me directly in the back of the neck while sitting up.
To remedy this, I searched for a tres chic upholstered headboard and oh, I found plenty of VERY cool, and VERY expensive ones. Lucky for me (and my wallet) I just so happen to have skills in upholstering. Self-taught. After sketching out a few ideas and taking a few measurements, this is what I've created. And turns out, it's quite simple, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I figure I spent under $125. Watch for an upcoming "instructions" post to follow so you can make one of your very own!
