As you may know this week I had the pleasure of volunteering on a project with Room Service Atlanta.   I worked with a designer/blogger Nikki McNeil and blogger/thrifter LaKeitha Duncan on recreating a space at a shelter The Nicholas House for the residents there.  
The rooms turned out Great!  I also made a headboard for blogger LaKeitha over at Home to 3 Duncan Boys.  So I thought I would share how you can create your own!
So here is what you will need....

Wood- cut size to your size
Fabric- alternatives drapes, sheets
Foam- try using mattress pads
Staple or glue gun

Many of this items you may already own.  Think creatively!! 


1.  Cut wood and foam to desired length
2.  Cut fabric 3-4 inches wider than wood
3.  Start in the middle of board and staple or glue down a section of the fabric to the wood.
4.  Move to the opposite sides of the board and pull tightly and repeat step 3.
5.  Repeat steps 3 and 4 on all 4 sides of the board.  Occasionally view front of the headboard to make sure the fabric is tightly wrapped (free of wrinkles).
6.  Continue stapling or gluing all for sides until the entire board has been completed.
