This is a project I did from years ago.
I started out with two large 16×20 artist canvases I had gotten for free. I used simple brackets to piece them together into one big piece. Then, I stapled foam, batting and grey fabric into place. The finishing touch? Grey-fabric buttons from Jo-Ann’s button kit for just $3.79.
Voila. A simple headboard under $70.
And here it is, all dressed up.
