Headboard Happiness

headboard projectI finally got around to doing something with this great fabric I found at Goodwill. My original intention was to use it as a bedspread, but it's one of those 70's fabrics with the vinyl fused to the back, which makes for a less than comfortable and very heavy blanket (how did people sleep under those?). When I tried to make pillow shams for my big square pillows, I couldn't move the fabric around on my sewing machine, it was just too thick. So I was at a loss as to how to use it, until I salvaged a teak tabletop. Once I got it home, I realized it was perfect headboard size. I had been procrastinating about getting the batting I would need to wrap the wood, but found some extra-cheap batting at Sirs. Fabric $8, board $0, batting $4, some staples, and voila! headboard happiness for $12!

Happiness is a nice new (warm)headboard- scuse me "Happiness is a Warm Gun" has been floating 'round my brain the last few days, don;t fear, no need to duck.
Looks good at twice the price of my new duvet cover.
