DIY Tufted Headboard




I'm pretty sure this is my most amazing DIY project yet (and definitely the most cost efficient one).  

I have been coveting this tufted headboard from West Elm forever.  At least a year. But for our king-sized bed, its $500 price tag - for just a headboard! - has kept me from buying it. 

SO I MADE ONE. And it's seriously so awesome. I LOVE IT. Love, love, love it.

And I made it for a fraction of the price.  Just over $100 in fact. And it's custom - right down to the fabric, the color, the number of buttons, the height, the length, everything.


  1. Ami, it really is amazing. Every time I think you can't get more awesome, you prove me wrong!

  2. Annndddd...if I'm being honest, waaay prettier than the $500 one.

  3. I freaking love this. I've been trying to find something like this forever. You have a king side bed right?
