Three in One Upholstered Hanging Headboard

Tools and Materials:

Drill, bits and chuck
Measuring tape
Pencil
Wood adhesive
screws

All wood was cut at my local big hardware store.
Determine the finished panel sizes you want and subtract 1/2" from the width measurement. That will allow for the foam and padding in the center of the finished headboard. I used 1/2" plywood for the fronts and 2" x 4"s for the frame. Next time, I would back off the 2"x 4"s and use 1"x 6"s for the frame and increase the foam thickness.

unctional" might as well be my middle name. I usually create furnishings and accessories that serve more than one purpose, or that can be easily changed out for a different look. After way too much fussing over a complicated jigsaw headboard design, I landed on this two-panel upholstered hanging headboard, which scores big on multiple levels. It’s doable for anyone who can use a staple gun and sew a straight line, it’s pack-and-ship friendly for quick skedaddling, and it has the beefiness of a professionally made headboard. The best feature of all is the interchangeable pairs of sewn fabric bands you can easily switch at a moment’s notice. And they can be washed or dry cleaned. If your only upholstery experience has been redoing your kitchen chair seats, and you’ve been chomping at the bit to try a headboard, this is the perfect beginning upholstery project for you — it'll boost your DIY confidence too. My incentive is always to make something that's one of a kind. Let your inner designer loose. Don’t be afraid to make a mistake, either — almost all upholstery mistakes can be corrected or hidden. Add to ideabook by Upholstery Club's Shelly Leer After some experimenting, here's what I came up with. Black and white awning stripes turned on their side — you can't go wrong with this look for spring. The purple box pillows calm it down and heighten the sophistication. Add to ideabook by Upholstery Club's Shelly Leer Bright orange is my favorite alternative to red. It's hard to see in the photo, but the headboard fabric has a small raised mod circle pattern, while the two down-filled lumbar pillows are made with a midcentury nubby fabric that adds the perfect counterbalance of texture to the crisp white bed linens. Add to ideabook by Upholstery Club's Shelly Leer Sweet, soft and feminine never felt so updated. All-natural light blue linen takes center stage on the 43-inch-tall white upholstered panels. These panels are so packable and portable, they're perfect for that big, comfy bed at the cottage. Add to ideabook by Upholstery Club's Shelly Leer Tools and materials: •Drill, bits and chuck •Measuring tape •Pencil •Wood adhesive •Screws •Precut plywood (big hardware stores can cut it for you) •Upholstery foam •Dacron •2 kinds of fabric (for the headboard base and the accent)
