My in-laws are coming! My in-laws are coming! Oh my, it’s been over a year that I made this headboard out of a curtain panel and an ugly painting my husband had before we were married.  This headboard was for our guest room and ever since I made that garage sale bench for this room, the old headboard didn’t really match. I even made shoe box lid wall art and matching pillows (even though I can’t sew).  Now that my in-laws are visiting, I wanted to update it with a little fabric.

Here is the old headboard.  I thought it looked nice, considering I spent ZERO dollars making it!

Here is the bench that I made that I put at the end of the bed.  This one cost about $20.00 total for the bench AND the supplies…score!

And just in case you missed that shoe box lid wall art.  Here it is!  This was also very inexpensive to make since I already had everything!

This is the fabric I chose to match the bench.  It’s outdoor fabric that is very durable.  About a yard and a half was perfect for this sized canvas.  I didn’t bother taking off the old curtain panel… well…because I was lazy that day!

Here’s the AFTER photo again.  I’m really excited for my in-laws to visit.  We rarely get to see them since we live in California and they live in Wisconsin.  I hope they have a nice stay, and the headboard doesn’t fall apart!
