Because we’ve been rewatching Mad Men, but I can’t get this beautiful tufted headboard out of my mind. The color, tufting, and shape is so pretty.
I’ve already bought the fabric (just going with a simple navy) for the DIY headboard I plan to do using Jenny Komenda’s tutorial (photo above). She gives detailed instructions about how to do it and my absolute most favorite is that she suggests using a pegboard that’s cut to size. I mean, genius right?
Also, Jenny’s above post inspired my purchase of this fabric for a square bolster pillow. I think it’ll go perfect with my navy headboard.
Now, I’m just trying to decide if I want to go fancy or not. I love the frame on the purple headboard above that’s also from Jenny at Little Green Notebook. Maybe I could go with just simple lines and possibly some nail head trim? I think that my bedroom needs the texture and depth a tufted headboard offers though.
I’m also loving this headboard shape from Dwell Studio. It’s pretty beautiful and yet simple. But that’d require a bit more skill and I’m not so sure I’ve got the time or patience for it.
It’s taken me a long time (two years) to start really working on my bedroom. But if it turns out like anything I’ve been planning in my head, it’s going to be awesome!
