I have been desperate for an upholstered headboard but I just haven't been able to find one that I like. Well, tonight I was at a fabric store and found the perfect fabric. I bought 2 yards, enough for a headboard. But now I have zero money for the supplies needed to make the actual headboard. My boyfriend has many different size canvases around our apartment. Is there any way to make a headboard out of a canvas or two? Thanks!

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the ATLA team or our readers can help you out.

DanaD, check out this cool example created by Yasmine Hermans with three canvases, a stencil and some paint. We think her idea would open a world of possibilities if you perused through the 3,500 images of the Stencil Library. Or you could a projector if you already have or can borrow one, as shown in this previous DIY mural project.

Here are a few more DIY headboard inspirations that might give birth to some optional decorative ideas.
