Who's excited?! This kid! I've got my headboard almost complete. I cut the foam and the crevice for the inner line:
I added batting to the center of the headboard to give it a bit more of a puffy look:
I cut and sewed the navy velvet upholstery fabric:
I fitted the fabric to the board and used a pneumatic staple gun to affix the fabric to the board:
So I've done everything in my original plan but it just didn't turn out as magnificent as I had hoped. I think it's because A)I'm not a professional upholsterer person (duh) B)I made the outline too far in compared to the inspiration piece and C)Picked a fabric color that was too dark to see the details of the center puffiness etc. Never fear! I have a plan to make it magnificent but different; I want to put white cording in the inner seam. Here is the idea pinned onto half the board:
Please let me know what you think and if I should also maybe add some to the edge as well. I'm heading to Joann's this weekend to get some more piping so I can try that look out as well. Can't wait for your feedback!
