cottage DIY Headboard for a little girls room

This small cottage bedroom needed an update for a very cute little girl. We picked a great stripe fabric for drapes and bedskirt, a beautiful purple embroidered fabric for the duvet cover and made a custom headboard from a salvaged top piece from an old dresser. We added hooks and made the back cushion with ties and thick piping.
She was very happy with it!

    I adore this idea. Trying to think of something similar for an adult bedroom. Maybe a cushion with big tropical flowers since I live in FL, than change it in the fall to another color or pattern. The possibilities are endless for an idea like this because it is so changeable. Thank you.
