Velvet tufted headboard finally done

It has only been a year and a half, but I finally got my inspiration headboard done for Shannon and Nate’s guest bedroom.

This picture was my inspiration picture I found back in October 2010 via Cococozy

I was so excited when I found the same shaped headboard on Craig’s list for $60

I knew this headboard would work perfectly for my inspiration picture.  But I needed to find the perfect fabric.  When I saw this Thom Flicia turquoise velvet fabric at Calico Corners  I was in love.

The color was a perfect match for the room, so I quickly ordered the fabric and anticipated it’s arrival to start this project.

So what took me so long to actually make the headboard?  Getting the fabric.  First it was back ordered, then out of stock and then lost in transit for 9 months.  I didn’t think I was ever going to finish this project! {nor did Shannon and Nate, their guest room sat with a blank wall behind the bed the whole time I was waiting for this fabric}   I was so set on using this fabric so I just waited, and waited and waited…but it was so worth the wait!

It turned out just as I had imagined, and just finishes off the room {the damask drapes are from Anthropologie}

Oh, so worth the wait right?  My grandson Carter even can’t stop staring at it

  4. Oh my!  Stephanie, it looks fabulous!  I can’t believe you were so patient (stubborn) to wait for the fabric.  :) I will have to see how you did it.  I think it wasn’t hard for you, but I don’t think I would like working with the fabric/foam/needle.  :)
    Carter is adorable.  Thanks for sharing those pics with us!  Love shannon and nate’s guest room. so pretty!

    What a gorgeous job you did on your headboard! This gives me an idea for my thrift store headboard. Thanks again.

  12. Jami at freckled laundry says:

    Holy gorgeous! Did you tackle that double piping yourself? Awesome. Seriously, I love yours more than the inspiration photo (which is still beautiful). I’m glad you stuck with that fabric. I’m not sure I would have been so committed to a wait that long…well worth it though!

  13. This is so beautiful! I have been thinking how to make a fabric headboard for our room and this is great inspiration! Love the blue velvet. Well worth the wait.

  14. OMG! Your headboard is freaking amazing! Seriously I love it. I’ve been toying with the idea of building my own and upholstering it but this is a much better idea! Thanks for the inspiration. Its beautiful!
