Estee and Judd made this amazing headboard using Britex Fabric home decorating fabric. We love how they utilized our beautifully detailed sea creatures linen.
She said: “I am happy to report that the headboard project went extremely well and we absolutely love the sea creature fabric we chose! This project took us the entire weekend, but we had the headboard installed first thing Monday morning! Judd and I are both crafty and love working on home improvement projects. He had made some readymade-esque items for the kitchen and I have reupholstered some dining room chairs. Other than that, this is our first major project together.”
