Week 3 and February 1st already! I made some great progress over last weekend and crossed some things off of my to-do list. Today, I'm going to show you my headboard project for my corner daybed.
I have a single mattress in the corner of my office where I want to be able to curl up and read. I wanted a more finished look, so I decided to make a headboard. I started with 2 sheets of plywood cut to size for me at Home Depot.
I purchased a single bed foam mattress topper from Wal-Mart for $17 and wrapped the boards with that and some batting over top. This was quite easy, and I actually didn't even use spray adhesive, as the staples held it tight. Then I cut the white sailcloth I purchased and wrapped it around and stapled tight. I used simple eye hooks on the back of the boards and hung them to the wall on nails.
I was planning on tufting the boards, but actually liked the casual look for this room. But it did need something to finish it, so I added nail head detailing along the edges. Simplest thing ever and cost only $2 for a box of 25 nailheads.
So now you are getting the idea of my white room with pops of colour. I also did some DIY art and hacked an IKEA chair, which I will show you next week.
