Picture of DIY Fabric Headboard How To
In my quest to redo my daughter, Sereena’s bedroom and stay within my itty bitty budget, I decided to try my hands at a DIY fabric headboard for her full size bed.

Originally, I was going to try to follow this tutorial or this one from one of my fave blogs, Centsational Girl, but then I thought to myself, …”these headboards are gorgeous, but you are just not going to ever get around to jigsawing some plywood”. So I decided to put on my thinking cap and come up with an alternative solution to my headboard dilemma. During my thinking session, the clouds parted and the sun popped out along with a light bulb of an idea! “use foam boards ditsy!!” came to mind! (It was staring at me in the face all this time! Duhh)

I must admit that initially I struggled with trying to figure out how the foam boards would stand up to wear and tear, but then I decided to just try it out since Sereena is 17 yrs old and can now take care of her stuff. They also only cost $1.50 per board and I bought 6 for my project, but only ended up using 4. I figured, if my idea doesn’t work, then I’m only out $9 buckaroos…so ahead I went with my DIY plan.
