    Great headboard! I found you through “before and after”–looks like your blog will be a fun read. I’m curious–did the part that needed reupholstered come unscrewed from the rest of the headboard? Is that how the fabric wraps around?

    • You got it. To me, that’s one of the beauties of making over already-made furniture – so often, you can see how it was done and just undo and redo it! In fact, originally there was piping around the hideous striped fabric and I bought some braided trim to put around the fabric part when I reattached it, but I liked it without it, so I left it off.

  2. I just found your blog and have sat and read every post! You have some fantastic makeovers and I think this one is my favorite. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!!

  3. I found your site through Better After and I am hooked! I love the lamp and the headboard. I have been trying to talk my husband into a headboard for a few years now {we can NEVER agree on a style of bedroom furniture} but this inspired me to just go out find one and do it and hope he likes it. Thanks !!

    • I feel your pain – my ex cared about home decor, too! Arrrggghhh – I guess that’s the price we pay for gender equality!!! Then again, I love to use power tools, so I guess it’s a wash! 🙂

  4. Wow that is gorgeous! You did an amazing job. What stencil did you use? I used the Cutting Edge stencils which were very big so it only took me about 45 minutes to do.I love the aqua and white.

    • I agree – the stenciling was a lot quicker than I expected. I can’t remember the name of the stencil I used…I think I bought it at Hobby Lobby, though.

      I was going to do what you did and cut out a headboard myself, but I was so glad when I saw this one because I was afraid I’d end up with some lopsided monstrosity!

      We’re so crafty! :O)
