How to (temporarily) Upholster a Metal Headboard
This is an old project but a super budget friendly hack! I had an old metal bed and really wanted an upholstered look. However, I didn't want to spend $$$ on a new bed! So, I created this hack to add a temporary upholstered look. Here's how to do it!
Lay out materials
Lay the peg board down on the foam.
Cut the foam to the size of your board plus a 1 inch border around the edge.
Lay it on top of your fabric, bad side up. Pull it TIGHT over the edge and staple. We do a center staple & one on each side, then fill in.
Continue to staple around the whole rectangle, pulling tight.
Trim excess fabric
Add zip ties
Thread zip ties through the holes in the pegboard, down into one hole and out the next hole.
Attach to headboard
Use zip ties to attach to the headboard. Pull tight and trim excess of plastic zip tie.
This is how my headboard looked after! And, when I got sick of it, I simply cut the zip ties and it went back to normal! Super easy!
