Upholster Your Bed Frame in Few Hours

3 Materials
6 Hours

So... before we got married, my husband convinced me to move in at his place and I can decorate as much as I could. Well I only managed to do so in the sitting room however i put a hold on the bedroom because we got pregnant during our honeymoon.

However I finally I started and did a bed DIY Uphostering. The easiest part is that I did not have to start building the bed since we already had a wooden bed.

Step 1

I started by dismantling the bed which most beds comes in four pieces, the headboard, two side rails and the footer. Then start stapling the form onto the wooden surface in the 4 different sections.

Step 2

Then you’ll lay the form on top of the fabric.

This is what the it will look like when you place the fabric on the form. Basically all you need is to repeat the process of laying the form and fabric on the 4 sections.

Isn’t this such a big difference in just a day or should I say a few hours, no saw and pretty quick.

Love the outcome and wish I actually DIY'd this earlier. Now to get better pretty bedding's

    Increase the headboard?? How do you do that? Is there a reason why you didn't show this whole tutorial? It's just hard to see how you did this without pics and your instructions don't say anything about increasing anything...

      Yes I increased the headboard, I must have forgotten to take a picture since I was doing this with my husband and no one to assist with the pictures

      However, yes I added a piece of wood to increase the height of the headboard

    I would love to do this project! However, I too am wondering if you could share how you increased the height if the headboard? I’m guessing you used a piece of plywood but would really like to hear from you

    Seems pretty simple to me and not sure why this idea never came to mind  . I will be tackling this project and saving $1,000 bucks on bed I was planning to purchase. Thx
