Incase you’ve been loving and ‘eyeing’ these fabric headboard beds in some of these Lagos showrooms like I’ve been doing for a while, but the price “no gree you” especially the ones with tufting, well let’s just say you are in luck.
~ What you will need ~
7. Tools – A cutting knife, staple gun, drill, bolts, rubber mallet, clamps hangers and studs. You can get these from a tool shop. Shoprite in lekki has staple guns.
Please note that this can only be done with a bed that doesn’t have a headboard already. If its a new bed and you want to try this, have the bed done with only the frames. No headboard at all. It will look like this picture below. If its an old bed that you want to update, you can have the headboard removed then replace that section of the frame to look like what you have on the foot side of the bed.
~ Step 1, Cut the plywod ~
~ Step 2, Cut the foam ~
~ Step 3, Cut the Batting and the fabric ~
Lay the batting on the floor and place the board over it as in step 2. But insted, add a minimum of 3 inches on each side so you can have enough fabic to pull over the edge of the plywood. Use thesame process to cut the fabric too.
~ Step 4, Attaching the foam ~
~ Step 5, Attaching the batting ~
~ Step 6, Attaching the fabric ~
~ Step 7, Attaching the nail trims ~
~ Step 8, Finishing ~
