If you recall, my headboard was originally planned on being two 18"x24" frames, then became a long and lean rectangular frame with a fun green floral printed gift wrap inside. I liked the gift wrap option, but it just didn't feel right. So I kept searching for inspiration and I found it (read about that here).
Silly me just realized that I never posted what I did or how I did it! D'oh! So here is the "finished" result...for now!
|Allow shopping purchases to be evaluated by a DIY-sniffing dog.|
|Wait for approval...|
|I had to cover my windows with any available blankets/towels due to the amount of light they let in, much to the dismay of my dogs who love the above blanket.|
|Using a laser level and painters tape, tape a straight line where the top of the headboard will be|
|This was on the back of a mirror from Target, but a protractor or small ruler will work as well. I temporarily nailed it to the wall to allow me to create the cutout on the corner of the headboard|
|And swing the piece/ruler down, letting the pencil glide the way|
|You should have a nice curved line, if not perfect you can re-do or touch up by hand|
|Start painting the line with a small paint brush- careful around wires!|
|Paint the rest with a roller|
|Pay attention to the pup who couldn't be bothered to move while the bed moved a few feet|
|Admire said pup while waiting for the paint to dry between coats|
