headboard: play by play

i mentioned the headboard project we did here.

(a piece of ply wood cut for free at home depot)

(when doing the top and edges, wrap the foam around the back.)

(repeat foam process with batting,)

(iron fabric material if needed.)

(cover headboard with fabric and staple to the back- pull tight.)

(measure and center over the bed.)

(add clips to the head board and wall to hang by.)

in the end we went from this:
