The $15 Headboard ~PB Seagrass Style~

(Don't forget to enter the logo design giveaway while your here!)


Yesterday I went to a garage sale at a local church and found...I don't know, a bamboo? rattan? seagrass? something-or-other, shade. It was $1.00.



The first thing that popped into my head was the Seagrass Headboard on the Pottery Barn website (below):



The ceiling in my room is vaulted and there's a LOT of space to fill so I dreamt about a taller version of the seagrass headboard and started about with the magic. I gathered my materials....

6 - 2x2's
2 pieces of plywood
wood screws
nails
hammer
screw driver
stain


We started by building the frame,


Then nailed the plywood to the frame and stained the legs,


After the stain was dry we stood up the structure and began upholstering. I made sure to flip the edges under so that it wouldn't unravel.


The material was pliable enough that it allowed me to bend it around the corners and create a fold at the top side edge.


The result:






Mine:

Pottery Barn:


Not too shabby for $15.00!

  28. I've used the same shade to cover the cushion on a small bench for my guest bathroom, and a mirror frame. I think it's woven paper and jute thread. I sprayed on a clear coat (don't remember which one) on the bench. I haven't had any problems with wear or staining.
    Your headboard looks great!
