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.

    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!
