Upcycled Canvas Headboard Update
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!
