Designing & Making a Patchwork Headboard
I first decieded to learn how to upholster when I got a quote for the re-upholstery of my retro 2 seat sofa and armchairs, the price was out of my budget so I needed a plan B. Plan B was to attend a city & gills upholstery class and learn how to do it myself and I did.
In order to obtain the city & gills certificate I had to work on various pieces on furniture, one was a headboard. I needed a single headboard for my small spare bedroom which I was about to decorate. Here are my designs, my work and the completed headboard.
