A DIY Priority — Make A Headboard For Our Bedroom
I warned y’all a few days ago that I’d be pretty scattered, jumping from project to project, and from the house to the condo and back, until the condo is finished. But not even I would have guessed that a headboard for our bedroom would become a serious priority right now. But it’s definitely on my top five list, and probably hovering around the #3 spot. I’m hoping to make time this weekend to start on it, and hopefully even finish it.
So what’s the rush? Well, the season. Thank goodness we live in Texas, because our weather has been pretty mild so far, with only just a handful of cold days and nights. And of course, to a Texan, a really cold day is anything in the 40’s or below, and a really cold night is…well…the same.
The other day when I was at Hancock Fabrics, I noticed that they had their Whisper Vinyl (my absolute favorite vinyl because it’s so soft!) on sale for 40% off, so I picked up a couple of yards in the navy blue. Now I just have to decide what to do with it. We already have a bed that I built right after we moved into our house, and it’s a dark stained wood.
So I’m picturing an upholstered headboard with a wood frame. I’ve found four different designs that I really like, so I just need to narrow it down to the one that I’d like to use in my bedroom. That’s a bit difficult since I don’t really have anything else done in there, and I’m still in the planning stages with the whole, overall design of the room.
The first one is this square tufted design. I think this would be considered biscuit tufting, which I’ve never done before and would love to try…
