Here is the BEFORE:
I painted the frames first (after some major sanding, scraping and priming) and sealed with a satin poly. The upholstery was a bit tricky but once we got the first one under our belt the second one was a breeze! We first laid the headboard out flat and placed batting over the headboard and laid the fabric on top. We trimmed up the fabric and batting a bit around the edges but not too much that you lose some inches when stapling. Then we stapled down both sides first to be sure it was even then started up one end towards the top making sure to staple close together and as close to the frame as we could get being careful not to scratch the paint. We had to trim the fabric and batting as we went because it would get bound up too tight around the details. It went fairly quickly with two sets of hands to pull tight!
Once the stapling was done we made sure all the excess fabric was trimmed away with a utility knife. We stapled the fabric underneth and screwed in a bottom wooden slat the finish out the bottom.
Sewed the matching fabric for the cabinet insert too!
Can you say FABULOUS??!
