I think this fireplace mantel headboard is just FABULOUS. A first time DIY-er in NY made this beauty after seeing one that was just too expensive. She first made a u-shaped rectangular box. Then she added moulding and trim and painted the whole thing. She covered 1/2" of foam with fabric and stapled together. After drilling the holes for buttons the tufted look came together. So smart & beautiful - all for $140! Details at www.hometalk.com.
