I've been looking forward to today for a long time! For the last few weeks I've been drawing sketches of my headboard in the margins of meeting notes, researching fabrics while eating dinner, and studying construction techniques while watching TV. Finally, while at my parents' house over the Thanksgiving holiday, I took advantage of my dad's construction knowledge and tools and my mom's upholstery knowledge and tools and came up with a mock-up of just how I want my headboard to look.
Here is a look at the mock-up process today but I'm keeping the design a secret until it's all finished! My room is awfully tiny so the headboard will pretty much define the whole room and I'm really, really excited about how it's going to look!
