Just a little sneak peek ;)
I left ya'll with this image below. A dismembered bed..EEK
A few of you shared your concern and even thought I may be sorry later.
The bed was old and a post was broken so no love loss here.
In fact, my husband now tells me he hated those post.
They always seemed to get in his way of the TV.
You're welcome sweetie :)
I didn't have a plan past the post amputation.
All I knew was I wanted a modern suite looking room.
So I started with boxing the headboard in.
I measured once and cut... x'3
till it was just right.
I then screwed in L brackets to give it more stability.
Here is a view from the backside.
This will be up against the wall so no worries here.
I used foam that I purchased from Wal Mart.
It holds up better than the batting I find.
I used a staple gun along the backside.
For the fabric, I knew I needed something durable.
I wanted a linen look minus the price.
Drop Cloths...how I love thee!
It works so well for projects such as this.
Missy and I draped it over my foam board and folded the corners over.
I then drew a staright line where I wanted my nail trim to go.
You can buy the trim that comes in a roll
I didn't want to wait so I am went old school.
one. at. a. time.....forever..
I may just be finished for Christmas...ha!
No..really. This is a long process.
Buy the trim by the roll.
Not to mention I bought all that Lowes had so. I. wait.
Patience...I'm working on that one ;)
Thank goodness my sister is always near to keep me busy.
