Once you have completely tufted your headboard it is time to secure the fabric all around. Lay the headboard face down on the ground for this step. You have already completed the top, but it doesn’t hurt to add a few extra staples. To get a nice nice corners on your headboard, fold and tuck the top sides down and pull across to create a perfect top-to-side seam, then staple in place. Continue down both sides, pulling the fabric taught as you go. It just needs to be straight and look good from the front, not the back.
Next it’s time to mark drill holes for tufting. There is nothing I hate more than measuring, so I did a quick search on Pinterest for “DIY tufted headboards” and noticed that at least a few geniuses simply used pegboard as the backing for their headboards and foot boards. Such mart DIY’ers! Granted pegboard that width would cost extra and be less sturdy. So I borrowed the pegboard off my craft room wall and used it only as a template to mark the wood on my headboard.
Diamond tufted headboards are stunning, but so prohibitively expensive that I wasn’t sure I would ever gain one for my home.

In the bedroom, you’ll find a charming tufted headboard, rustic side tables and dresser, and a large window with views of the city. The bathroom features his-and-her sinks, a large bathtub and a glass-door-enclosed shower. You’ll also have access to the high-rise building’s amenities including a pool and fitness center.
