Here are the twins in action in the bedroom. Now you can see why I needed verrrryy skinny nightstands in order to have one on each side of the bed. This is how it looked before:
Now, I realize that my headboard is nowhere near as beautiful as the inspiration headboard. But I still like it. And I did learn a few things while making it that might be useful to someone else, so I thought I would pass along my knowledge.
First, the beauty of this headboard lies in the mix of the fabric. Because the pieces are not very big, you can use whatever beautiful fabric scraps you have on hand… I, unfortunately, did not really have any beautiful fabric scraps. Nor did I have a lot of extra money to buy some. So I improvised. I bought several pretty skirts at the Goodwill and took apart a few throw pillow covers. That is how I was able to incorporate some fabrics with beautiful embroidery.
