EASIEST WAY TO RECOVER A BUTTONED HEADBOARD.
The easiest, laziest way to recover an upholstered buttoned/tufted headboard ever!
I really wanted one of these big padded headboards.
This gorgeous number is from Luxury Beds Online and costs £400.
and this enormous bright purple number was £15 from a charity furniture shop.
It took two guys and all their strength (it weighs a ton) to haul it through the house and up the stairs.
This is the easy way I recovered it.
You only need fabric and three things.
A curly needle
(I used darning thread, 10p from a charity shop).
Throw the fabric over the headboard.
Then using the curly needle,
put a stitch through the fabric and the fabric covering the button underneath.
Knot it a couple of times.
When all the 'buttons' have been done.
Turn it around and do a tacking stitch to attach the fabric at the back
I love it, I'm glad I didn't waste hours/days doing it properly.
Delivery £5 (God they earned that, they were actually sweating)
Fabric £0 (curtain remnants)
I think this is possibly one of my favourite,
aiming for luxe on a budget house things.
