DIY: How to update your headboard
I'm a big fan of DIY projects. Maybe not so much doing it myself but I love reading/watching others makeovers, haha. The other week I found a headboard in our storage room but it had this ugly dirty-beige colour so I googled around to see what I could do.I found a bunch of people that had done these fancy tufted headboards but I just wanted something plain..
What you're going to need:
- A old, scruffy headboard
- Upholstery fabric
Laid it out in my living room and placed the headboard face down. Made sure I had enough space on each side to fold it over
I stretched the fabric towards myself and hammered a nail in. Turned out it was too long so I hammered it halfway and then bent the nail. Worked fine, haha.
When it came to the legs I simply cut the material to make space for the legs
And hammered some more nails in..
The corners were a bit tricky but I just folded the fabric on itself and popped a nail through the fabric layers!
Next I had my flatmate Alana help me fit the headboard behind my bed.. Here's a before and after!
The headboard is a little too small for my personal liking but it'll do for now :) What's good about this is.. If I ever get tired of the grey colour I can easily change it!
Hope you enjoyed my little DIY post <3
