Fabric: so very versatile, necessary, and perfect for any crafting need. For me, the hardest part of purchasing fabric
is choosing which fabric I want to take home. I usually end up going overboard with my purchases, as I can never decide on just one color.
My girls were to share a room, so they each would have had their own twin bed separated by a night table. Since they carry my genes, I know that they'd get bored very easily with their headboards
. The perfect solution? Cover the headboards with coordinating fabric
that they picked out themselves.
Fabric, scissors, and a staple gun
are all you need to have on hand to create your one-of-a-kind headboard. Just staple the fabric to the headboard, working outwards from the center. Don't pull too tight, as you don't want to stretch and tear the fabric. When you are done, stand back and admire your job-well-done.
