DIL is re-doing several rooms in her apartment here at the calliope. Her bedroom is the first to get some changes. She found a beautifully upholstered headboard, that fit perfectly, but the fabric was intended for a little girls room.
So we bought another drop cloth from Home Depot. (click here for our post on the dining room chair slipcovers we did from drop cloths also) We washed it, used lots of Downey fabric softener in the rinse and dried it in a hot dryer to shrink it. Then we measured, pinned and sewed the cutest dang slipcover for it!
Her room is still in transition, so in the meantime this waits at our house for the big reveal with all the goodies in the room. Soon, we hope.
The dog in the picture is Piglet, their Boston Terrier. She seems to be asking "where's the rest of the bed? I'm ready to jump up for a snooze!"
Cost to make... $13.00 and 2 hours of our time!!!
