The bedroom is always more elegant if our bed has a headboard you will see that if you do not have one. You put one you will capture all the eyes of all those people who see your bedroom. The result can be very different depending on the fabric you use but this has to adapt to the decoration of your bedroom.

How to Upholster

Remove the headboard from your bed or buy a wood that makes the dimensions of the width of the bed or a little more. So that it comes out on both sides of your bed and make it look bigger. Mark the measurements above the foam. These have to be the same as those of the table plus five centimeters on each side of the table. It has to be bigger than the table where we are going to put it because the foam has to cover a whole face of the table and a piece of the opposite side as if it embraced the board.

The foam can be bought in the same store where you buy the fabric with which you want to upholster the table. The next step is to cut the foam with a scissors following the marks of the measurements that you marked in the previous step. The width of the foam is usually standard, so you will not find it difficult to cut it.

Put the headboard on the floor or on a long table and cover it with the foam, so it will be fluffy and comfortable at the back. You have to bend the foam that protrudes from the board toward the back of the board and staple it. Every 2 or 3 centimeters a staple is placed on the edge of the foam and around the entire board. So that the foam is tight.

Once the foam is stapled on the headboard, you will do the same with the fabric you have chosen. First you have to put any cloth on the sole to avoid staining the fabric with which you will upholster the headboard. Next, you have to stretch the fabric on the floor or on a long table with the fabric upside down and then put the side of the headboard covered with foam on top. The foam remains thus facing the ground downwards.

As with foam, the fabric measurements also have to be higher than those on the board. In this case it will be about 7 centimeters higher, because we have to rely on the thickness of the foam that we have put before. Then trim the necessary steps with the scissors. Put staples in the back of the board at the edge of the fabric putting a staple every 2 or 3 centimeters and try to pull the fabric well as we have previously done with the foam.

This will prevent wrinkles in the headboard. You can already put the headboard in your bedroom and enjoy it by laying your back on the table when you read a book before going to sleep. You will have a fashionable headboard. Once you have upholstered your headboard you will need to know how to attach the headboard to the wall.

Tips

If you want to make it easier to cut the foam you can do it with the same method in which the fabric is cut. That is stretch the foam on the floor and put the headboard on top. Then cut the foam around the board but leaving about 5 centimeters margin. The upholstery can be fabric leather or sky depends on the taste of each one and that the chosen material is well with the rest of the bedroom.
