When I Made My Bed I Really Made My Bed!

Donated my old headboard after getting sick of dusting it.  It was a very ornate Spanish style.  Want to get a cream colored metal headboard, very plain, but in the meantime I had some old pegboard stands I used to use in art shows sitting around in the basement.  Used one that was 2 24″ X 48″ boards hinged together.  Perfect width and height for a queen size bed.

Thickness of the cotton batting.


Cut the legs off flush to the pegboards, already had some fabric with a nature theme and color similar to my spring spread.  I purchased 3 yards of Thermal Bonded Cotton Batting 54″ wide.  Folded it in half and sewed up the sides with 1″ seams then slipped it over the boards.

Did the same thing with the Decor Fabric and viola!  Instant headboard, quick and easy.  Real cheap for me by re-purposing the pegboard stand as the base. 

The original reason for choosing pegboard was to double stuff the batting and tuft it with curious buttons, but I decided that I want to leave as is for now so all I have to do is make any additional covers for it.  It is easy to remove the washable cotton duck type fabric that is now on it to launder and replace it with something else come winter time.
