Working on my headboard as soon as M- gets home. He will be cutting the wood and helping me cover it! I am excited because we haven't had a headboard for a while now. Here is a sneak peak of the covering. I will be following these instructions mostly, except it will be a tad bit bigger. It will be about 6'10" long and 55" high. hopefully it will impart the "drama" we are looking for (just ask my dad).
