Emma Jeffery of Hello Beautiful visits the Spoonflower blog today to share a custom upholstered headboard tutorial, a project made gorgeous, unique and comfortable in custom printed faux suede*. This simple and quick home DIY will make a big, personalized impact on your space!
Spoonflower’s new faux suede is the perfect fabric for making a statement piece like this upholstered headboard. I used a dramatic print from the Spoonflower marketplace by Jennifer Flannigan. This is a no-sew project and is simple in its construction. And whilst I’m more at home in a fabric store than a hardware store, this headboard requires more industrial supplies than you can find at your average craft store. I’ve tried to list my supplies as accurately as possible so that you can easily find what you need to create your own. Getting the foam and plywood cut in store really helps keep this project manageable if you don’t have access to or inclination to use your own power tools.
*Spoonflower’s Faux Suede was retired in the spring of 2018 but Celosia Velvet™ is a great alternative for this project!
