Turn a basic bedroom into a dream with three simple projects that cost so little you can give your room a facelift without depleting your savings.
Make a covered headboard (ours is medium-density fiberboard) with batting and fabric; pick a fabric with spandex fiber for extra stretch.
Yardage: Fabric at least 3 inches wider all around than headboard frame
6.Stretch and staple the fabric to fit smoothly around the board.
7.To further secure fabric to the headboard, push a needle and thread from the back through the hole drilled in the board, through the button loop, then to the back of the board.
This step lets the button dimple the fabric.
1.Measure the comforter, adding 1 inch on three sides and 2 inches along top edge.
The trick to making this fun, fringy pillow is to buy coarsely woven fabric that makes it easy to pull thick, loose threads off the cut ends.
Yardage: 1/2 yard for a 16-inch pillowTime: 1 hour
1.To start, cut two pieces of fabric 2 inches wider all around than the pillow form.
