In Headboard Heaven!

After an almost 5 month hiatus, we got back to work on the headboard and finally finished it this week. 
Before I reveal the end results, let me give you a peek into the drama it took to get here.

Check out post # 1 From Headboard Heck
and Post #2 Into the Depths of Headboard Heck 
for the dumb drama that came along for the ride.

The End Results:
(P.S. Don't pay attention to the shorty nightstand on the left- it is getting replaced soon!)

Here is a detail of the border and the nailhead trim:
Although this picture makes the fabric look wavy- it isn't!

I love how it has turned out. It makes the room feel so much more complete. It also makes me want to change our bedding. The turquoise Euro's that I photographed are actually from my guest bedroom and are just to show how big the back pillows SHOULD be. Right now, I only have king size shams and need to make Euros to add some height to my bedding. 

I bought these velvet fabrics at Scott's in Atlanta a couple of years ago and have never used them. I'm so glad that I have waited- -I can't wait to make them and finish the bed up!

Not to bore you with the step by steps, I have posted another post that goes more into detail in case you want to make one yourself!

It was a fun project, even with the hang-ups, but it is so rewarding when it is finished and you are able to enjoy your hard work!


  1. i would love to redo our headboard but it is apart of the bed already but maybe husband will let me change things up a bit!!

    1. You should convince him--it is worth it! I was finally able to get this done when we went from a queen to a king--otherwise, we would probably still have my husband's bedframe from college, ha!
