I currently don’t have a headboard, and I’m looking to fix that! That’s why I’ve been browsing through headboard projects on Hometalk and Pinterest. A lot of them look super expensive and complicated, until I found this tutorial by Delusions of Ingenuity at Hometalk. It’s super funny, and will teach you how to make a gorgeous headboard out of curtains, wood planks, a mattress pad, and quilt batting. Check it out here:
Purchase a big ole sheet of MDF and cut it to whatever size you want. Then buy a cheap mattress pad, cut it in half, and trim it to size. Wrap the whole dang mess with some quilt batting and schtaple it down.
Then wrap your curtain around the whole dang mess and schtaple it down. Attach it to your frame made of wood planks.
