Make Your Bed...

I have this idea for a Christmas window display and it requires a padded bed headboard. A few years ago I picked one up at an auction and thought it would be perfect. But when I looked at it again the other day it was huge ...there was no way it was going to fit into the window.

So today I went hunting for a new headboard and was lucky to find the perfect one... a basic wood with a nice shape. All I needed to do was paint and cover it with fabric. I have no idea how to do this correctly so I decided to dive right in with a glue gun and hammer.

If you don't look too close it turned out pretty good... :)
I can't wait to do the window this week!

Nice job! I found an upholstered headboard last summer. It is on my project list for today! I've painted the base, but now for the upholstery... any tips???

Yours turned out great!
