DIY Headboard: 1. Place foam padding on plywood. 2. Cover foam and sides of plywood with batting. 3. Staple batting to back of plywood, rounding corners. 4. Attach fabric by stapling to back. (I used duck cloth b/c study and doesn't collect lint!) 5. Attach French Cleat to back to hang. (Must use level) 6. DONE! Stripes are ribbons stapled to back.
