- Faux Leather Vinyl- 2 1/2 yards
- plywood- 1 large piece for base depending on headboard size and one small one to cut edging.
- 1×2 common board for trim
- quilt batting
- 2″ foam-qty 2
- Spray adhesive
- Nailhead Trim Kit-I ordered 2 for my king headboard
- heavy duty stapler
To start, I went to the fabric store and searched for fabric. I knew I wanted it white…but I was nervous about stains. I found a perfect faux leather made of white vinyl (which can be wiped and cleaned) and knew that it would be perfect. Next, I went to the hardware store and purchased plywood. (*I am using photos from both headboard projects so you will notice some variation in the type of plywood used)
(Notice you make sure and leave your border uncovered.) This is so that you have something nice and sturdy to hold your nailhead trim in. Otherwise it won’t be able to stick past the foam. After the foam was placed, you’ll used low loft quilt batting to cover the entire headboard.
