Upholstered HEADBOARD Craft...(Here's your template)

If you haven't already discovered this, and you're handy with a staple gun and a drill, then here's the simplest way to create custom upholstered headboards for your inventory 'without re-inventing the wheel!'  I've used it so many times, I can't tell you.  Enjoy.

NOTE: Just have your local dealer pre-cut the hollow door for you before leaving the store.  Home Depot, Lowes, and most of the "big box" home improvement stores provide cutting services.  Sure beats doing it at home, and the door fits easily inside your vehicle (assuming you have a vehicle that can accommodate).  Cheers.

Thanks Anna.  You know, the canvas version will be much easier to lug around...I'd try that one out first.  :-)

Than you can make a frame yourself from 2x2 (if it's too big make sure that you have 2x2 across every 16" for support)and than assemble and wrap at the place.

A blog post comes back to light and just caught the suggestion of building this with a large canvas for staging.  I've done some wall art that way but didn't think about going bigger for a headboard.

Good luck, Cindy.  It should be a snap. :)
