I found this headboard at a local thrift store (LAST SUMMER?!) and immediately fell in love with the shape. I wasn't so much in love with the cheapy, thin, green and white micro-check fabric. By the way, Little One was just barely over a year old and we weren't moving her into a big girl bed anytime soon but I knew I had to get this or I would regret it. It sat in the garage for a while waiting for it's destiny! And here we are on the verge of her 2nd birthday and I am so glad I was the "crazy one" who bought her big girl bed a year in advance. When you like something, you like it, am I right?
Compared to those chairs, the staples on this one were sooo easy. The foam underneath was in great shape so I just put a layer of quilt batting over the foam and put this nice new romantic girly fabric on it.
Calico Corners is having a 20% off all fabric sale until the 26th....just so you know....
There was quite the drama with this fabric. Ordered it in Sept. didn't open the package till January after I got the bed frame painted and glazed. Upon opening, realized there were blue pen marks all over my 3 yards of fabric! Had to reorder only to learn the fabric was on backorder for a month. A lesson in patience I tell you! But it was worth the wait because I really do love the choice.
Why, yes. Yes that IS double welt cording I made and glued on m'self!
I am convinced Centsational Girl and I live parallel lives because on more than one occasion I have come to an impasse or question on some project and I need only wait one or two days and her next post has to do with the very thing I am stuck on. It's a bit freaky....
In this case, her post on double welt cording was so timely as I had visited a sewing store the previous week looking for a special sewing foot to make double welting and was so disappointed to learn that there was no such thing? Thanks to CG I was able to move forward.
