H is for Headboards

The ABC’s of window treatments

Upholstered headboards are not window treatments but bedding is something that I make so I’m going to include them in my alphabet series. 

I just finished the headboard for my guest room, it’s covered in a pvc fabric and has nickel nail heads that measure 13/16”.   There’s a close up of the fabric in my Fabricut post.

The mirror over the bed was made from a sculptured sunburst I found at Home Goods and spray painted silver then added an automotive mirror from Auto Zone.


I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you.  The headboard below has a simple curved shape and tufting.

I thought this shape was really unusual, it’s simple but has a big impact.

My friend Sarah at StoriBook Designs is getting ready to make this headboard with scroll cutouts, can’t wait to see hers !

This one has a very gentle curve and two rows of contrast cording.

Fabrics can be solid, geometric or floral, there’s a shape for every fabric design.

This is an upholstered bed that I’ll be making for a client next week, I’ll post pics once it’s finished.

I’ll be posting over at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday.

You work is so gorgeous! I want to make an upholstered headboard for my master -- but it won't turn out as good as your's!

I love these, Tammy! Some of the really curvy ones are my favorite. Yours turned out wonderfully and I love the mirror you made over it. Auto Zone, huh?

Your headboard looks great! And that mirror is fabulous!! Weren't you smart to get a mirror from the auto store?! I will have to remember that trick!

Hey great pic, I don't remember seeing it before!! Okay, what a fabulous idea for the sunburst mirror--you are so creative Tammy!

You are so talented. I love upholstered headboards. The other night my husband and I were watching an old episode of Mad Men and I was practically drooling over the headboard in one of the character's rooms.

These are some dreamy headboards! I totally need to make one for my own home.

I make them for others all the time I can't believe I don't have one for myself.

Looks great. I really love the tuffed ones. I once heard that every room needs a bit of tuff...

I just love upholstered headboards. They are so much better all the way around compared to a wood or iron bed!!
