Well friends, my upholstered headboard is complete and I am so pumped about how it turned out. It was actually really easy to do. Now I would like to say that I did this on my own, but that didn't happen. Jeremy and Adam cut the boards and then I realized that using the staple gun that isn't electric was not an easy task! It took a lot of strength to get that dang foam and batting stapled to the wood. Since Jeremy is a loving and wonderful husband he did all but about 6 of the staples! haha.. he wasn't very thrilled but he did so much of the work. It really didn't take long at all. I bet we could do another one in less than an hour. Quick process! Here are a few pictures of the whole fiesta. And... it isn't up on the wall yet, just resting there. We still have to do that but we decided to get in the pool instead of doing that this weekend :)

What do you think?! Remember if you want to make one we got all of the info from the blog Pink Wallpaper... it is one of my fav blogs!! If only I was that dang crafty, my house would be amazing! But it is getting there :)

Emily, don't know if you remember me or not. Staci is my husband's cousin and I first met you at her bachelorette party. Anywho, just wanted you to know that your headboard is gorgeous! Was your fabric expensive? It's so pretty! Anyway, I've been following your blog, and it's so fun! I can't wait see more of your projects!

Hey Denise!!! Of course I remember you! How are the babies?! Thanks for the sweet comments =) The fabric was cheap, it was on sale a Hobby Lobby for 30 or 40% off. Home Fabric and Rugs by the mall has a ton and some are super super cheap! I love that place... if only I need tons of fabrics!
