This is part 3 of a series of posts on creating my DIY bed. Find the home post here, the first post on the footboard creation here and the post on the headboard frame here. Now we start upholstering the headboard:
I have always loved the look of an upholstered headboard, to me it looks and feels like an adult bed. This was a big project, the only furniture I built this summer. This post will link to to several others as it was quite a process and really breaks down into several steps. That way you can see take the whole process of each separate element of the bed.
I love mail, I love sending mail, I love receiving mail, I love checking the mail, I love everything about mail. I also LOVE making my own home-made cards to mail. I have gotten progressively better at these over the years, and I thought it was about time to showcase some of the highlights of my card making career (so far, I am no where near retirement). You can see my full Pinterest board of my creations and inspiration here. Be sure to vote at the bottom of the post on your favourite card.

You know what I did have in my pantry already? Coconut Oil and Sugar! Perfect.
I’m having a little dinner party in two days and one thing on my to-do list was to make a centre piece. I got these little vases for $2 each at my local dollar store. The candles were on sale at Target 4 for $3. And I got the pine cones from my local park – for free. (MAN I LOVE FREE!)
