Simple Tufted Headboard

Make a tufted headboard to give a new look to your bed set
It’s been quite a while since I last changed my bedroom furniture and to be honest I’ve had enough of it! I’m sure many of you have too. That’s the reason I’m posting a terrific D.I.Y technique that will set a modern twist in your plain old bed set. With the Simple Tufted Headboard, you would be able to change your bedroom’s look without buying new furniture.

The tools and supplies can be easily found at your nearest hardware store. You can give any kind of look to your bed set by choosing the right fabric. Jute will give a casual look; velvet or silk will give a royal look; leather would give an executive look and so forth. After the fabric is chosen, all you need to do is dome sawing, drilling and stapling. It’s not half as hard as it looks!

You can use our Recycled Wine Bottle Lamp for the side tables and the amazing String Lights to make it even more appealing. No one would even guess that it’s the same old bed set! Do try it and share your revamped bed pictures here.
