Tutorial: How to make a Fabric Headboard
In my master bedroom, I wanted an extra large headboard that would make a statement.Here are my instructions on how to make a fabric headboard…not just any fabric headboard...you’ll see. Step 1: Find fabric that you love! I found this fabric at my favorite fabric store called Home Fabrics and Rugs. Step 2: Measure your space. Go big or go home right!?!? Step 3: Divide your space into squares. Step 4: Buy 2 sheets of thin backer board and cut them PRECISELY the right size. Step 5: Buy some foam and cut it into precisely the right size. Step 6: Cut the fabric. Step 7: Upholster every square. I’m not going to lie, this part was very frustrating. We had to HOT GLUE to fabric onto the boards and then the staples would go through. We also made pencil marks on the back sides of the boards to use as guides of how far to pull the fabric. Step 8. Step 9: Lay out your squares and decide on their position. Step 10. UPDATE (May 19) I wanted to answer some of your questions about the mounting process.
