Hey there! Join me on Instagram and Pinterest to connect on all the behind the scenes action!

I’m SO excited to finally reveal the two headboards

that I made for the Beach House.

(a little early even….I just couldn’t wait to share!)

Today is just the “pretty” post and then I’ll be sharing next

And this was my FIRST time EVER making an upholstered headboard.

  1. i am totally LOVING that blue one!!! awesome job!

  2. Anneke, absolutely love love love the headboards! You are so talented! Great job! xx Kristin

    • Thanks so much Kristin! I had some GREAT references which I’ll be sharing next week ~ it would have been so much more difficult without them!

  3. O. M. G.

    They are STUNNNNING! I can’t even decide which I like better. They both look so expensive, so custom and yes – like SO SO much work. :) WOW. I’ll be back to check out your tutorial. Congratulations on finishing these!

    • Ahhhhhh!!!! Thanks SO much Kelly!!! You’re tutorial was such a HUGE help ~ I’ll definitely be sending people your way when I post all the details next week! It was fun for the most part….I only just about cried when I realized the whole sideways fabric thing, but other than that, it went pretty smooth! :-)

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Would swear you bought these –
    Your newest follower – would love to have you follow
    back too :)

  5. I particularly love the first headboard – the oversized damask pattern is a great idea. I wonder, though, why you choose to place the pattern in the direction you did – I think I would have placed in up and down!

    • Oh my,GREAT question! I actually had talked about this on the Facebook page. I would have LOVED too! It was my intention to use the fabric up and down, but when I bought it online, I didn’t realize the cut didn’t allow for it. My headboard is 61″ wide, then add 5″ on each side and I needed 71″ of width. Going up and down, the width was only 54″. :-( Does that make sense? Because of our personal time and budget restraints, I just had to run with it so to say! :-)

  6. Wow these are soo gorgeous, I love love love the green fabric. Do you mind telling me where you got it from or who makes it?
    Thanks, I will definitely be back to see the tutorial on these.

    the headboards are just beautiful… did a wonderful job on them….so professional….did you attach the headboard to the wall? I can’t wait to read the tut….and I will be following you….

    • Thanks Kathleen! We did attach them to the wall with the D-rings you can find in the tutorial just posted, although in these pictures they weren’t attached yet! Just wait until you see the professional pictures next week!!! :-)
