And we finally finished Madison's headboard. It began as this not-very-attractive, plain...yet functional brown headboard.
After being inspired by many spray painting projects here in blog world, I thought I would give spray painting a try. Oh my. This is what it looked like in the progress. Scary.
After three coats of spray paint, I finally decided to paint the rest with some white paint we had leftover from another project. Finally, I was satisfied and able to move on to next step:). Madison chose some hot pink zebra fabric and some pom-pom trim to cover the shelf and add softness.
We chose to use velcro to attach the fabric to the headboard. That we it could easily be removed and we could change out fabric if we needed to. I orginally going to handsew the velcro to the fabric (I don't own a sewing machine AND I don't know how to sew). Ha, ha, ha.
Meet my new best friend:
So here is the finished product!!! We will use the rest of the fabric to make a desk chair cover and cushion. It looks so cute in her room.
Behind the curtain, her books and STUFF (you know, all of the piddly little things tweens need). The backing of the shelf is still brown and rough. We have big plans to put mirrored tile back there.
The little round object is a little light we had orginally bought for under the kitchen cabinets. Madison had the great idea of velcroing it underneath the shelf, like a nightlight. So cute, the girl has some great ideas!
One more shot!
We also made this bolster pillow (which I did hand sew, don't judge:) and this desk blotter). Madison picked out the fabric, the suede fringe and the cute buttons on the sides.
Okay, I feel caught up. I think. My next post is about our summer plans and how we survive the summer without killing each other (my husband and I are both off all summer long).
