Headboard Project

I wanted the look of a headboard on the wall behind my bed, so obviously, I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration.

When I didn't have any large wood scrap lying around..... ;)
I decided on something like the latter two photos.

I bought a bunch of wood-framed mirror squares from Ikea, and actually covered them in slightly larger squares of fabric, securing with hot glue.

I used several different mixed prints of fabric, that I felt all worked together, and once glued down, worked out a pattern that I liked.
You could add a layer of batting to make them softer and more plush-looking.

Note: I liked the look of actually leaving a couple mirrored squares as is.

I then hung each with a picture hanger nailed to the back of the wood frames.
Using this neat trick (found on Pinterest, duh!) to hang the frames.

Unique collage headboard! So there.


I'd love to hear from you!
