MIUY = mess it up yourself. FYI.

This weekend I finally have time to do something that I have been wanting to do for awhile. Since moving into my new home, we have been trying to decorate and slowly but surely, the house is getting there.... every room but my room. It has been left as one of the last tasks because people don't see it as much as the rest of the house. But to be honest, every minute that I am in it I think about how it needs to be decorated and put together and it is driving me absolutely crazy. So this weekend, I am making a headboard.

I want to make an upholstered, tufted headboard. I have decided on a brown fabric and gold buttons to match my new bedding that I recently purchased at Kohl's. I'm sure you all love it, and you can purchase it on the website if you want to be a copy cat.

I have researched DIY upholstered headboards for awhile and this awesome website was so helpful! Now- this is my first real attempt at DIY so wish me luck!


If this blog post has been deleted Monday and I don't mention making my own headboard, that means I failed. In which case, we shall pretend that none of this ever happened.


  1. Good luck to you! Can't wait to see the results!

  2. I can't wait to see how it turns out!

  3. I bought fabric to attempt to make myself one too! I ended up being a chicken and a guy I know made it for me instead! I love it! Can't wait to see yours!!!

  4. I'm loving this new black and white background! I can't wait to see how your head board goes!
