It occurred to me that I never detailed the cost of my headboard project. I want to share, so you all can see how inexpensive it is to make your own.
Fabric- 2 yards @3.50/yard =7.00
batting- twin sized, regularly 9.99, but used a 40% off coupon= 5.99
foam- 2 twin sized egg crate foam toppers @9.99 each= 19.98
Plywood- 4x8 ft sheet @15.46
Already had- staple gun, staples, nailhead trim
Also, I have more than half of the plywood left over for other projects. I probably could even make a smaller headboard for someone else.
Not bad, considering similar headboards are at least $250 (even at Target).
