i finally decided to do something about the headboard situation in my bedroom. because we have the window right above the bed it's been tough trying to find the perfect piece so i took matters into my own hands and made one. super simple.
1. cut plywood to size
2. cut a 45 degree angle at both top corners
3. cut foam to just a 1/4" bigger around all three sides of plywood
4. lay fabric pattern side down followed by foam and then plywood
5. wrap the fabric around the edges and staple taught
it may not look like much in the photos but it really polishes off the bed and makes it feel a million times less like a dorm room. there's a bit of pattern that peeks out around the sides and the pillows stand up better.
ps. i used a curtain panel from world market as the fabric.
