Hello fellow chirpers : ) I thought I would break the ice by posting about one of my most recent projects! In order to make the most out of our guest room, we invested in a twin sized bed that our little one would use eventually anyway. The twin bed by itself was super boring, so I decided to make a headboard for it.
It is a very inexpensive and easy way to dress up a bedroom, and it can even be used as wall art. Using a chop saw (actually a great investment), nails, and a hammer I created a simple wooden frame. Then I picked out a fun canvas print from my local fabric shop and used a staple gun to attach it to the frame, folding the fabric around the corners and edges, ensuring a nice tight fit. I then hung it on the wall behind the bed as if it were a normal piece of art, and tada!!! A new exciting headboard.
