When I was a sophomore I transferred to a small arts school in the city, where I had wanted to go since the ripe age of nine. Yet the issue with transferring was I came a few months too late for the housing lottery and started the hunt for apartments. A year later, it’s still strange to be going back to an apartment instead of a dorm. But I really love my place, and I love finding new and fun ways to make it truly mine. So this week’s What Will I Make is an outlined headboard. I saw a cool photo of a simple outlined headboard for above your bed (and as I am lacking one, I decided to make one).
Materials for this makeover
- Card stock or heavy paper (I used water color paper since I had some lying around)
- Black paint, or markers
- A pencil
- Possibly a stencil
- I started by tracing my design in pencil first, then used the scissors to cut out the pieces. I then laid the pieces out on my kitchen floor so that I knew the widths were fairly equal.
- I then started to paint the pieces, and set them out to dry.
