A headboard like this generally doesn't merit a second glance. But if you have an aversion to useful items being tossed, a head full of good design ideas and a friend who is handy with a needle and thread, the ugliest of ducklings can become a swan.
Sara at Simplify by Sara sees potential in the humblest of items. After saving this eyesore from the trash she enlisted her friend Monique from Becker Window Fashions to transform it into a perfect headboard for her daughter's room. One vibrant fabric slipcover later and what was once trashy is now flashy. Get all of the details at Sara's blog and be sure to check out all of Monique's handiwork as well.
