DIY headboard

A project in pictures::

 Recently we moved; and in doing so my sister and I ended up switching beds.
Since hers - which was now mine - was without a headboard I decided to make one.
I found this ugly thing at a local furniture consignment store.

And I covered it first with this batting.

And then proceeded with the material on top.

My mom and I tucked and folded the material tight around the headboard and secured with hot glue.
{this is the lazy man's way of sewing and speaking from experience works wonders!}

Then I had my first attempts at making rosettes...

Presenting the finished product!!

I absolutely love it!
And the great thing about it is I can always pull apart and recover with a different fabric if I want.

This was definitely my favorite project of the month.
