Headboard Project - The Supplies

So I've got all the supplies to make our headboard! Here are a few of them:


I also bought a big sheet of pressed wood, buttons to cover, and wood & screws to attach to bed frame.


This is the headboard material up close. It's vinyl (I'm going for the faux leather look).


I am planning on it looking something along these lines:

Should I go with the square button pattern or diamonds? I'm leaning towards the diamond pattern...

  4. I am with Erica, I like square, it is avery simple and clean, and I think would be a good compliment to your bed spread which is very wild.
    But that is just me. both are awesome.

    I also have a headboard I want to re-do so I am expecting great notes, as well as a visit from you to help me! sound good?

  6. Wow, what a great project! I love headboards and the examples you picked look great. I would go with the square pattern because it looks a little more modern, but go with whichever one makes you happy.

  10. I like the diamonds but Brian says the squares look more modern.I'm sure either will be lovely. It's going to be great to have a nice padded headboard to lean on while you read in bed.
