Headboard Before/After

I am so happy to have had my blog nominated to feature on The Decorating Forum What a thrill. So I hope this week to have some posts that will inspire others and show what can be done to beautify your home at a minimal cost. Some of you may remember the 2 headboards I got off ebay. I paid $45 for the pair.
I posted about the pink one I finished...


and now here is the white one...


The fabric is a lovely white velour ($4/m Spotlight)


The buttons were covered by an upholsterer (50cents/button)





Tomorrow I would like to share a project that has seen my muscles bulk up and a few kilos dropped. Here's a sneak peek......
