Tufted Fabric Headboard with Winged Sides

Chris and Julie from DO or DIY desperately needed some pizzazz in their guest bedroom and knew the perfect solution would be a headboard that made a BIG statement. However, despite all the tutorials for DIY headboards, Chris and Julie but didn’t find anything that quite fit the mark. The couple decided to come up with their own design that combined fabric, tufts, winged sides, and nailhead trim. Julie says, “It makes just the statement we wanted in the room, accomplishing that luxurious hotel look we were going for… although I didn’t consider how it would encourage guests to never leave! The best part of this project was that it was a weekend’s worth of work that only cost us $100, compared to retail versions that ranged from $800-1500!”

Wood Coffee Table to Tufted Ottoman

Abbie from Five Days Five Ways was ready for a change from the serviceable wood coffee table she had in her living room. She had her heart set on a large tufted ottoman but knew it would come with an equally large price tag. While Abbie says she doesn’t do pricey, she does do DIY and quickly set out on turning a square coffee table from Craigslist into the ottoman of her dreams. I love how Abbie repurposed a table and think her lovely ottoman is the icing on the cake in her gorgeously decorated living room.
