A wishin' and a hopin'.....

Here are a couple of pics that should give away
what we are going through in our lives right now.
If you have half a brain you should be able to figure it out.
If not, sorry it's all over my brain so maybe that's why I
think these pictures make it simple.



I don't wanna say too much, for I feel it will mess it all up.
 {Please have it be ours though.}

But all of this talk, this idea, this hope, our dream.... is making me realize...
I just have to have an upholstered headboard
for our bed in the master bedroom!

I fell in love with them in my recent decor project 
and now I scour the internet for ideas. 

Here are some I found:








They start around $250 and go up into the thousands....
anyone ever made one before?  Are they easy?
Could this be a winter project?

Suzanne I saw an episode on HGTV where they made an upholstered headboard. It really did look easy. They used the following tools, staple gun, glue gun, needle & thread (buttons if you want that look). I know you could do it! The upside is, you can find the fabric and save money there!

I like headboard #1... I looks like your style.. If my opinion matters...

I have one that we made and it really is pretty easy! Probably cost around 250 to make - the foam padding you get to go on the board is the most expensive part. Totally easy - you could so do this!

Oh, I want to hear more but meanwhile, I'll be praying! I had a friend who made a headboard and there wasn't much to it, you most certainly could make one!
