Make This Headboard.

Now that I am feeling all DIYawesome, I am ready to take on anything (and I know you are, too). I really loved this headboard from A Single Man. It would be so easy to make a very similar version by copying Grace's headboard from Design*Sponge. Remember this?:

First, you need this fabric available at Decoratorsbest.com for $37.50/yd. (I think it's also at Calico Corners):

Laura Ashley Tilbury in Lapis

Then you need to watch this:



Then you need to send me a picture so I can ooh and aah.

Yes, this gorgeous ikat print fabric is available at the Calico Corners stores across the country or also online. It's called TILBURY in color Lapis and retails for $24.99/yard. You can find Tilbury and many other ikats, graphic prints or textures that will make great headboards at www.calicocorners.com. Happy decorating everyone!

Love love love! I'm thinking I may need a cottage to make this happen... after all I need a home for my current head board. :)
