West Elm Inspired DIY Leather Tufted Headboard

west elm inspired upholstered headboard DiIY

As a person of a certain age (cough, cough, late 20s), I often want nice things but my taste outpaces my bank account. Can anyone relate? This headboard from West Elm has been on my radar for a while now and is so deliciously beautiful. I WANTED it, tried to bargain with myself why I should get it, and thought of things I could give up in exchange. But in the end, my boyfriend talked me off yet another figurative cliff and I challenged myself to make the best knock off version I could. Enter: my DIY Leather Tufted Headboard.

How to make your own DIY Leather Tufted Headboard

upholstered headboard befoer

Since our previous bed was a low platform style, we needed to purchase a new frame in addition to replacing the headboard. After researching beds vs. bed frames only, I ultimately went with this IKEA Hemnes bed because it got us a new frame and with the low price tag I didn’t worry about covering the headboard.

Here are the rest of the supplies:

  • Headboard to cover
    • Alternate– Skip covering an old headboard all together and use pegboard as your base layer. You’ll then mount directly to the wall using z-clips.
  • Peg board- cut to the same size as your headboard
    • You’ll only need this if your headboard has cut out areas like mine or if you’re using pegboard as the base layer. If you are using a solid wood headboard, skip this step.
    • Pro tip– Home Depot will not cut peg board so try a local lumber yard or cut on your own saw.
  • Drill and wood screws
  • High-density foam
    • I went with 2” thick but this is what determines how deep the tufted indents can go, so feel free to go thicker if you’d like. They make up to 5″!
    • Alternate– If you’re budget conscious, try using an inexpensive foam mattress cover instead.
  • Batting
  • Basting spray or spray adhesive
  • Leather fabric
    • I purchased a nice vinyl alternative. You’ll need at least 2.5 yds. for a Queen bed but you may want to order more for wiggle room.
    • Pro tipFabric.com lets you order samples at a low cost so I ordered a few options to look at in my room with my other furniture and textiles.
    • Alternate– If leather isn’t your thing, you can replicate with any upholstery fabric.
  • Button kit
  • Florist wire
  • Heavy duty staple gun
    • This low-cost version from JoAnns was great.
  • Heavy duty staples
  • Upholstery needles

Step 1

diy upholstered headboard and then we tried

Lay your headboard flat and work in an area that you can flip and move the headboard as needed. You’re going to need to be able to get to all angles!


Step 2

diy upholstered headboard and then we tried

Since my headboard had cut out sections I started by attaching a piece of pegboard over the top to give me a flat surface. I recommend using peg board since it already has pre-drilled holes which will be handy when adding the buttons to tuft. Easily secure the pegboard with a few wood screws on all sides.


Step 3

diy upholstered headboard and then we tried

Cut your foam to size. This can easily be done with a box cutter. Use a straight edge and take it slow and it cuts very easily. I then used a spray adhesive to attach the foam to the pegboard. It doesn’t need to be too secure, just enough so you can move the headboard around without the foam falling out of place.

Alternate– The sewing store will sell high-density foam (the green foam) and it is great but it is also really costly. I’ve seen other DIYs use inexpensive mattress pads from Target or somewhere comparable (the tan foam). Since my headboard was too tall for either option alone, I knew I would have to piece the foam in sections. While I was slightly nervous about this, it turned out to be completely fine, especially since the leather vinyl is a thick upholstery material. If you use the mattress pads be aware that they have ridges on one side. This made me a bit hesitant but again turned out fine. Just make sure to put the ridges against the pegboard to keep the flat side out.


Step 4

diy upholstered headboard and then we tried

Spray the face of the foam with your spray adhesive and lay the batting across the face leaving enough room on all sides to wrap around the edges. Once the adhesive has dried, flip the headboard onto its face and pull the batting tightly around all edges and staple to secure in the back. You’ll want this layer to look clean and taut since it is the last layer before fabric. But don’t stress, since the leather vinyl is a thick upholstery fabric it will cover up any minor inconsistencies on the face.


Step 5 (Optional)

(Only if you feel like sewing or making things harder)

diy upholstered headboard

If you noticed, the inspiration headboard has leather panels which create 2 seams running vertically and one horizontally. The 5 buttons are then all placed along the horizontal seam. While I initially did not think I was going to add this nuance, once I got to this point and was feeling pretty bad ass I challenged myself to add the seams. (If you’ve already decided to not add panels feel free to skip ahead) Now it’s time to do a little math…or look at the diagram below.

When planning for my seam, I knew that I didn’t want it to sit too low since the buttons would then be covered by pillows. This took a little bit of experimenting against the wall of my bedroom and measuring my pillow height (yes, it’s neurotic but I did it!). For me, since my headboard is 46” tall that meant having my buttons 8.5” from the top.

With my buttons 8.5” from the top I sewed two panels together, running my full width, with the top one being approximately 15” giving me enough extra fabric (15″-8.5″= 6.5” extra) to pull around the top edge and attach to the back. You can make your seam pattern how ever you’d like, just be sure to leave enough room to cover the sides! To make the vertical seams, I folded and sewed 2 seams that were 20” apart. See the diagram below for all the seam placements. Once all the seams are in, press them open with a hot iron.

DIY Upholstered Headboard Seam DiagramPro tip– I like to do a lot of mini-tests with scrap fabric before sewing or ironing. Work out the kinks on your sewing machine, figure out the heat setting on your iron. It’s always easier to do it on scrap pieces and adjust before going straight to the final product.


Step 6

diy headboard button placement

Once I had secured the batting I stood the headboard upright and planned where to place my buttons. Since the West Elm version was my inspiration I wanted to stick with 5 buttons across the middle running along my horizontal seam. Draping the fabric over at this point was very helpful to visualize the button placement.

You could easily choose to do a diamond shape tuft or even 2 lines of buttons for a more modern look. That’s the great thing about pegboard being the base layer- all the holes are already drilled so the pattern is totally up to you. And at this point, if you’re covering a solid headboard instead, you’ll need to plan your button locations and drill holes through the back of the headboard at those locations.

Pro tip–  Since your batting is only a base layer feel free to mark up all over it. I marked up 3 variations of button placement, took a minute to step back and ultimately decide what felt right.

DIY headboard tufted patterns

Now that it’s finished, I do still love the placement when we’ve removed the decorative pillows but they could have gone a bit higher to allow me to get some more decorative pillows piled up (maybe it’s for the best!)


Step 7

Making buttons—this could be an entire blog post to themselves. Now, this was hands down the hardest part of the project… not to scare you off! But really, it was HARD. Check out how my hand was looking post buttons.

making buttons hand problems

 

The button kit will come with not enough instructions and not many pieces.

and then we tried button kit pieces

  1. Use the fabric stencil to cut out a piece of fabric the correct size.how to make button step 1
  2. The goal here is to wrap your cut fabric circle around the curved button front and squish that face down into the silicone form. Pro tip– On the stencil, the outside circle is the size of fabric you need but the inside circle shows you what will be on the button face. Important if you are working with patterns!and then we tried making buttons step 2
  3. Once that is done, you gather the excess fabric, mash it into the concave back and hold it shut with the back of the button.and then we tried making buttons step 3 and then we tried making buttons step 4
  4. The only way you can do this though is to use the pusher piece against the back of the button to apply enough force to sandwich it all together.and then we tried making buttons step 6
  5. After much struggle, it’s magically a button.and then we tried making buttons step 5

If this sounds like a Game of Thrones level mental game, IT IS. This shit is hard. But give yourself time, maybe a glass of wine, and you CAN make all the buttons. I believe in you! I also looked for a button set meant specifically for upholstery fabric and came up empty. If any of you know of one, please please let us know!

and then we tried making buttons final


Step 8

If you’ve decided to use a flat piece of fabric and not seam it, lay it on the face of your headboard (you can tack it down with the spray adhesive) and start pulling the excess taut around the edges and securing in the back with staples. Make sure to work a little bit on each side so that you are evenly pulling the fabric in each direction. I like to work from the center out and definitely leave the corners for last.

and then we tried upholstery diagram

However, if you did seam your fabric it is a slightly harder since the seams will need to stay level and will ultimately affect your button placement. Therefore, before I started attaching the fabric, I loosely secured 2 buttons in their correct locations to hold the fabric in the right spot while I pulled it taut. To attach the buttons, thread floral wire through back of the buttons and an upholstery needle and slowly push through the leather face. This should be relatively easy since it is going through the seam. Once you have pushed through the leather the batting and foam should be no issue. Fish the needle through until you come out one of the pegboard holes in the back. Now you can loosely twist the wire in the back to secure the buttons.

and then we tried upholstered headboard

Alternate– You could also use upholstery thread to attach the buttons but after a few tests (told you I like testing things!) the wire felt the most secure and let me really pull the buttons tight at the end and get a nice tufting effect.

Once your two buttons are in place follow the diagram above to attach all the fabric taut all the way around, leaving the corners for last.


Step 9

While the corners look daunting, they really are not. We just need to cover the order in which to fold and secure. (As demonstrated with my scrap fabric and screen)

At this point, all the sides should be well secured with fabric left loose at the corners.

upholstery corners step 1

First, pull the fabric from the side up and over the top.

upholstery corners step 2

Secure with one staple right into the top.

upholstery corners step 3

Now you will have almost a triangle of fabric. Fold the triangle down so that it creates a clean fold that runs along the corner of the headboard. And remember to experiment a few times folding it correctly before securing with staples.

upholstery corners step 4

Secure the fold with a staple.

upholstery corners step 5


Step 10

diy headboard buttons

Following the same method as above, attach the rest of your buttons. I started with the two I already had loosely placed. At this point, you can really pull the wire from the back and create that tufting effect. How tight you pull and secure the buttons in the back determines the tufted depth. Measure and add the final 3 buttons using the same method as before.


And viola, DIY Leather Tufted Headboard! You’ve done it! Give yourself a pat on the back and pour yourself that second glass of wine. Kudos!

diy upholstered headboard finished

I decided to add two simple 3″ shelves behind the bed for storage since the room isn’t wide enough for bedside tables.

The Trend in Crushed Velvet Beds Can Change Your Nights

Do you remember Seinfeld’s George Costanza and his biggest life goal? While he may have been career-challenged and romantically inept – and stuck living with his parents on too many occasions – his one true love was velvet. In fact, in the ever-popular series he was often quoted as saying that he would, “drape himself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.” That seemed pretty ridiculous until the episode entitled “The Doodle” where he covered himself in velvet from head to toe and carried on in public!

While your love for velvet might not reach the epic proportions of George Constanza’s (or maybe it does!), you have probably been considering getting on board with the newest trends in crushed velvet beds. A crushed velvet bed brings an element of lushness and glamour into your bedroom décor while also surrounding you – whether as an upholstered headboard/footboard or the entire frame – in one of the softest fabrics produced. Sleeping (or even just watching television) in a crushed velvet bed will make you feel like royalty – with all of the lavishness of the fabric cascading around you.

There are about sixteen types of velvet used by tapestries and upholsterers throughout the world – both natural and synthetic in nature. Some of these include such velvets as:

· Mirror velvet

· Embossed velvet

· Chiffon (sometimes known as “transparent”) velvet

· Cisele velvet

· Lyons velvet

· Hammered velvet

 

Crushed velvet, however – at least in our opinion – is one of the most decadent velvets produced. Crushed velvet is painstakingly fashioned by pushing its fabric in several varying directions – often done mechanically while the fabric is still wet. The unique production technique of crushed velvet gives its appearance and texture a very lustrous and inviting feel – which, when incorporated into your bedroom set, is a velvet lover’s dream come true.

 

Expertly hand carved from natural mahogany comes this delightful antique French style bed. Finished in a silver and featuring distinguished ornate detailing with a decorated Crushed velvet fabric buttoned headboard and footboard, this bed is ideal to add a touch of elegance and style in your bedroom today.

With a stunning Crushed Velvet fabric on the front and back of the headboard, this bed is ideal as a focal point in a variety of bedroom settings. Handcrafted from natural materials, this bed will impress across generations.

https://www.homesdirect365.co.uk/estelle-antique-french-style-bed-p40465

Another benefit of crushed velvet is that it is a very heavy and durable fabric. It’s quite simple to clean. Most of the time you’ll just want to lightly dust the fabric off, however, heavier stains do require some warm water and a touch of soap or detergent.

But beyond the functionality of crushed velvet is the way it will make you feel. Your first time lying down in your new crushed velvet bed will make you feel like you are floating on air, surrounded by a beautiful piece of furniture that is uniquely yours. When your friends come to visit and you’re giving them the updated tour of your house, you won’t want to wait to wait to show off your new crushed velvet bed. Your best friend’s look of envy will quickly remind you that you made the right purchase.

While you may have spent the majority of your life in a more traditional type of bed, an investment in a crushed velvet bed will bring you luxury and decadence for decades to come. It is an investment that will pay you back with lavishness every single night you head to bed.

Homes Direct 365 are not going to claim that getting on board with the trend of crushed velvet beds is going to completely change your life. But we are quite sure it is going to change your nights.

Why Silk is the Best Material for Sleeping

Having quality and quite sleep is beneficial for your health. This is why it is necessary to ensure that you sleep in a conducive environment without disturbances. One of the ways that you can do this is to ensure that you have the right fabric for sleeping. You should make sure you sleep with the right pyjamas and mattresses. Silk fabric is one of the best materials used to make pyjamas and mattresses. It has natural properties including lightness, breath-ability and is also strong. When you sleep on this fabric, you will feel warm during cold night and feel cool during the warm weather conditions. Here are some other reasons why silk fabric is the best material for sleeping.

Light in weight

In order to enjoy a great sleep, you do not need material that is heavy because it will act as a burden to you. One of the best aspects of silk material is that it is light in weight meaning that you will be able to wear the silk pyjamas and enjoy great sleep. You will not experience sleep disturbances associated with other heavy materials such as wool used in designing pyjamas or mattresses.

Does not lead to sweating

One of the major problems that may people go through is sweating during the night, leading to poor sleep. One of the advantages of silk is that it will not cause such sweating during the night. It is made of hygroscopic fibre that absorbs moisture without making you feel moist or damp. The other great thing is that the pyjamas and mattresses made from silk dry fast.

Conducive for all weather conditions

Silk fabric is conducive to be used in both cold and hot weather conditions. During the winter, you will feel warm when you wear silk pyjamas and sleep on silk mattresses. The material is warm naturally and does not cause itching. When it is hot, it offers cooling effect that will make you sleep well. It is breathable and does not get overheated even in hot weather conditions.

Smooth

For you to have perfect sleep, you need to sleep on a material that is soft. Silk fabric has a smooth surface and offers the softness that your skin requires when resting or sleeping. If has the softest fibres, making it conducive especially if you have sensitive skin.

Offer health benefits to the skin

Silk fabric has health benefits to the skin when used in designing pyjamas and mattresses. It contains sericin, which is a natural gum that is known to offer a lot of benefits to the skin because of the presence of the right amino acids. These amino acids make the skin healthier.

Safe for sleeping

It is important to ensure that you sleep on the safe material. Silk pyjamas and mattresses guarantee this high level safety. You will not be exposed to chemicals that might be harmful and it has anti-bacterial characteristics that are good for your overall body health. It is also more resistant to flame making it safe even for children.

Top 5 Australian Designers

Top 5 Australian Designers

I promised on my last post – Top 5 favorite Irish Designers – that I would post about my top 5 favorite Australian designers. This list was quite hard as these are designers that I have come across in my time in Australia but as I have only been here for 3 years, and living in rural areas, unlike my time in the city in Ireland, I haven’t gotten to see or hear about as many designers.

sj2581c_1_46dda43a-0a52-44bf-806a-c359084b1d76_large

Shona Joy is an absolute favorite of mine. I love to see how she has tailored the dresses in her collection. Her style to me is what I thought was ‘typical’ in Australia before I moved here. I was basing this purely on watching Home and Away. Yes, I’m an idiot! but I was pleasantly surprised when I came across her work last year as her price point is surprisingly affordable!

Alex Perry is another favorite of mine! An aussie fashion icon, it would be hard to list my top 5 favorite Australian designers and not include his work! He has dressed everyone from Kimmy K to Jessica Hart. His work is amazing! He is the most high profile designer in my top 5.

I came across Zimmerman when I first arrived in Australia. I love the prints and feminine feel to the collections. Some of the prints remind me of Laura Ashley which is no bad thing!

I came across Don’t Do Pretty on DressCollective.com and fell in love with the fierce edgy styling. Leather is really hard to wear in the Australian sun but I love the leather look for the cooler months.

Aje. I LOVE – I’ve saved my favorite for last! 90’s meets feminine with a little bit of edge. What’s not to love?

I would love to discover more Aussie designers, if you have a fave, please do leave a comment and let me know!

American vs. French-Girl Style: What’s the difference?!

Ah, French-girl style. If we had a croissant for every time there has been an article turned dissertation written about the nuances between French and American women, well, let’s just say no one would be mistaking us for French. And while the subject may often turn to the symbolic appeal of a marinière or whether or not Caroline de Maigret washes her hair with any real frequency, the complex breakdown between French-girl anything and American-girl proclivities remains a hot topic.

The nation’s street style stars always look so effortlessly elegant, and the je ne sais quoi factor is real—how do they make skinny jeans and a T-shirt look like the world’s most fashionable outfit? To shed some light on French style secrets, we connected with Vouge In Vines founder Hannah Harden to find out what she’s identified as key differences between American style and that of her countrywomen. Her recent Parisian excursion should help us fill in any grey areas between the two styles.

For starters, “French women buy less, but spend more on fashion,” Hannah explains. “We have so much opportunity in the US to discover and purchase merchandise, that we often purchase without truly needing or wanting something” French fashion has a history associated with quality and wealth, causing French women spend more money on staple pieces.”

Fast fashion is very big in the U.S., but in France investment shopping is a way of life. French girls are masterful at mixing high and low, while many Americans shop with a quantity-over-quality mindset, mining bargain shops for frequent wardrobe injections.

So, which of the two archetypes possess the greatest desire to keep up with the trends? If you ask the fashion blogger, who recently lived as a Parisian for a day, she’ll explain how American culture is more trend influenced because our identity as a country is so diverse. “We are a true melting pot of different cultures, styles, and aesthetics. We can be easily influenced by all the different trends being thrown at us!”

During her time in France, Hannah also found that that French women are more subtle with their statement pieces. American women are more favorable of large jewelry and embellishments, while Frenchies like to keep it simple. The American push to keep up with brand-new trends means that we’re more likely to spend less on our accessories; well-aware that we’ll likely want a replacement within 12 months.

Not to mention, Hannah found Purse life in Paris rather impressive! “A large distinction I noticed between French and American women’s purse choices is that French women tend to choose more neutral and subtle colors in their purses, leaning towards mid-size handbags with a boxier shape,” she says. “American women seem to favor brighter colors, unique shapes, and a more diverse size range.”

And since French girls tend to spend a bit more on their bags, they also tend to have less. American women tend to buy bags in an array of sizes and have the ultimate bag wardrobe, with a different one for every occasion. Overall, Hannah finds French women to be more detail oriented in their every-day fashion. “Americans tend to dress down for their daily outfit, while French women always look very presentable, sophisticated and put together all the time!”

Why luxury brands still aren’t embracing sustainable fashion

Designer Eileen Fisher made an eight-year commitment to sustainable fashion four years ago, after having “an epiphany about the earth” and her responsibility as the owner of her own company. In the years since, the brand has been vocal about these efforts.

“We made a commitment that, by the year 2020, we would eliminate our top volume fabric, viscose,” said Amy Hall, director of sustainable consciousness at Eileen Fisher. “The only thing was, we didn’t know how to do that then.”

During the WGSN Futures conference on November 10, Hall said that pushing Eileen Fisher’s brand to become more sustainable meant figuring things out along the way. Eileen Fisher has always been upfront about this journey, choosing to call itself “sustainably conscious,” not sustainable, because it’s still putting out waste into the world. The company lists the factories it works with and the fabrics it uses, plus it lists plans for future innovations. This month, it will launch Remade, a recycled line of clothing made from past designs that customers donated back to the brand rather than discarding. A dress in the collection, for instance, could be comprised of three pairs of used pants.

Right now, transparency in fashion is trendy. As they figure out the future of sustainability in retail, startup retail disruptors like Everlane and American Giant lay bare their pricing models and supply chain partners in an attempt to rope in conscious customers and keep them along for the ride. Mass companies like H&M, Zara and Gap Inc. have adopted similar habits in order to do the same; for fast fashion brands, speaking out about transparency and sustainability helps keep protesters at bay.

Among luxury brands, though, there’s some hesitancy to display company practices when it comes to sustainability and transparency. Hall spoke to an experience a member of her team had with her counterpart at a British brand, which Hall wouldn’t name specifically.

“We asked the counterpart if the cotton they used was organic, and she said no,” said Hall. “She said even if it was, we wouldn’t say, because organic doesn’t sell in the luxury market. To us, that’s a call to action.”

Hall said that this mindset emphasizes the idea that sustain-ably made clothing has to be, above all, good product. But she pressed that brands have a responsibility to educate and engage customers on sustainable measures so that they can take further action as individuals.

Marco Lucietti, the global marketing director of Isko Textile, said that sustainable brands can’t “force-feed people with what they’ve done.” Instead, they should just make commitments and stand by them. Sustainability in fashion can still carry the mindset of burlap, rather than luxury.

“People have a conception about what sustainable means in fashion,” said Marco Lucietti, global marketing director of Isko Textile. “But it’s not granola, hippy shit.”

Lucietti said that, as customers grow accustomed to brands being more transparent about their supply chains and efforts to improve workers’ rights and the environmental impact of production, this mindset will shift, both of the consumer and of the legacy brands.

On the factory level, the shift has already begun to take place. Jag Gill, founder of Sundar, a digital materials sourcing platform, said that most brands, even high-end ones, are beginning to open up their factory lists in order to find ones with cleaner supply chains.
