I’ve mentioned my plans for my headboard a few times, but the other day, I got my nailhead trim in the mail, and I’m excited to finally share! You know sharing my plans keeps me accountable, so here’s what’s going on.

I love the Curve headboard shown above from Crate and Barrel, and I am thinking that I’ll want corner cut-outs that are just a bit more exaggerated than the actual style from C&B.  This is what usually happens to me, I get an idea going in my head that has been based off something I see, but I’d like mine to be slightly different.  Maybe it’s a byproduct of working in the retail production industry, or maybe I’m just picky.

Regardless, I picked up some nailhead trim for just $3 per yard, some MDF for just $12, and some linen upholstery fabric for around $7 per yard.  I’m excited that I’ll get to play with the headboard proportions in front of the shelves (which have yet to be revealed) to see what works best for the shape.

Flexibility and affordability?  I like it!

What are your thoughts? Do you like where this is going?

Have a LOVELY Wednesday!
