No-Sew Drop Cloth Rosette Headboard Slipcover - Easy Bedroom Update


I had an old bunk bed that wasn't getting any use. So I decided it was time for an update. I started by removing the upper bunk of the bed to convert it to a comfy guest bed. But I wasn't crazy about the way the bunk bed's metal frame looked. And I couldn't remove and replace the headboard and footboard because they were part of the frame. And it wasn't something I could reupholster either. So I got

Unfortunately, I don't sew (sewing machines are scary!). So I found an amazing fabric adhesive instead that is both flexible and washable and I used it to make these gorgeous head board and foot board slip covers with pretty fabric rosettes.

    Does this have to be dry cleaned? Throwing it in the wash would mush up the rosettes wouldn't it???
