Upholstered Headboard

Okay, well Rob and I were interested in having an upholstered headboard. I did the typical furniture search online...and realized the one that I mostly wanted was way over any budget that I had in mind. Here is where the inspiration came from...the Restoration Hardware Wallace Upholstered Bed...a mere $1990 plus shipping. Um....that wasn't going to fly.
So we decided to look into findnig a project ideas on pinterest. I found this great tutorial for making a headboard on an awesome blog called Max and Isabella Rooms. Here is the link to their beautiful project. 

Here are the steps that we took. We first went to Jo-Anne fabrics. We were able to spend approximately $28.00 on fabric (2.5 yards)  Rob went back the next day to purchase the foam needed for the project. The next day the salesperson said it would be 50% off and we had a 10% off coupon. Therefore, the delay was 100% necessary. Rob went back and spent around $70.00 on the foam which was also about 2.5 yards.

We obtained our hammered nickel tacks from both Jo-Ann and Lowe's. I think Rob bought all the boxes he could find. We could have gotten the tacks in strips, but we were too excited to start the project and didn't want to wait for an online order to get shipped to us.

Thanks for reading!
