FINISHED!

I have a new best friend! Stephen the upholsterer from Burleigh Upholstery covered enough buttons to do this and another bedhead - 58 buttons all up. He was also more than happy to impart his upholstery knowledge when I quizzed him about deep button tufting. I told him I wanted to tackle this skill in the near future. I may need to have him on speed dial during the learning process!

So here is the reveal of the headboard I have been working on. I had missed out on 2 matching bedheads on ebay ($45 the pair) but was DELIGHTED when I was contacted and told that the winning bidder had defaulted and that I was now the owner of the bedheads should I still want them....duh yes!










BEFORE (below).







AFTER (Below).








I don't have a suitable single bed to display this on so I have it propped up at the end of my bed.










I intend to do the other matching bedhead in a white velveteen with white woodwork. I will be selling these so if anyone is interested, drop me an email.
I have a couple of blogs to recommend but will leave that 'til my next post as I need to get to school now, bye.

I absolutely love it - of course I am a "pink" fan, so it was inevitable that I'd like it, but teamed with the plain white colour, it's gorgeous! What a great idea!!!
