The DIY King Size Headboard Bedroom Project and Template

Jaime over at Prudent Baby sent us her most recent before and after project for her bedroom: a full DIY king size upholstered headboard. She not only takes us step by step, starting with particle and plywood boards, and then joining them altogether with foam sheets, batting and finally the fabric of her choice. We admire her handiwork, but even more so, because she's been kind enough to offer full DIY templates to follow in her footsteps.

One of my new year's resolutions is to get our bedroom decorated.  I will take you all on the journey with me, revealing the change bit by bit.  We just bought a new king size bed so step one is a new headboard.

I was thinking your readers might like these full DIYs with templates that I created for making your own cornices, and making a king size headboard. I thought it couldn't hurt to send them to you!

Thanks Jaime. Be sure to check out Jaime's fully illustrated step-by-step directions over at Prudent Baby, a blog for "DIYs for small fries".
