Making a padded headboard from comforter
I am losing the bed frame, head, and foot board, but get to keep the mattress/boxsprings. I want to buy a frame (where is the cheapest?), and make a padded headboard. I've been pondering padded headboards for quite awhile, thiking about what style I'd like, the material, etc., and I think my old comforter has seen better days, but still can arrange it so that good part is what is seen above the bed. And the matching shams also still look good. So have you ever done this? What would you take into consideration? I assume the comforter batting is good, but an additional layer would be needed, especially if I tuft in any way.
