DIY Upholstered Headboard with Nailhead Trim

I am smitten with this DIY upholstered headboard with nailhead trim that Freckles Chick made.

I wanted to share it with you because she has one of the easiest-to-follow tutorials I’ve seen and her version is super inexpensive.  Her headboard fabric is actually a drapery panel from Target’s clearance section!  Genius girl!  Go HERE for the full post.

Also, if you’re working on getting your home organized this weekend, Kate at Centsational Girl is offering some tips from a few blogging friends, and was kind enough to include me in her post.  Go HERE to read her article.  
Have a great weekend friends!

    I love upholstered headboards! I made a pair for a friend's sons this fall and have been trying to convince my husband that I should convert ours to an upholstered one ever since 🙂 Thanks for sharing this! xo

    I'm going to attempt to recover my current headboard. The tufting is intimidating. If that doesn't work out I'll need this tutorial!

    I DIY'd my HUGE (80×80) tufted headboard about a year ago. I now have to reupholster it (since my youngest and I ate breakfast in bed watching cartoons…fabric + syrup + little hands = reupholster), I will probably use the nail head trim. Thanks for sharing!
