Yep, we were just chatting the other day about DIY headboard ideas HERE and bam, we received the best pictures ever in our inbox from Trisha Brown. She and her husband Matt tackled a master bedroom rehaul that looks like it came from the pages of a celeb home. I love all the sweet details she put into the whole makeover.
Below is a snippet of what she had to say about the headboard/bed making process. And HERE'S an awesome tutorial link from Brick City Love that Trish found on Pinterest that provides even more DIY doing ammo, if this is a project you're thinking about tackling in the near future. Thanks for sharing such a great project with our readers Trish. You and Matt have a stunning master retreat that you should be so very, very proud of.

Ummm yeah, how amazing is THIS! We love, love, love it!
Here's the before, above! How far have they come! I mean, seriously...I'm high fiving them right through this post!
Trisha: The most expensive part of this project, the foam. It was half off and still $80 for 2 yards each...2 pieces. Underneath is a piece of plywood that was $9 at Home Depot. Matt did a grid on the foam to do a diamond pattern and punched out holes with a pipe. After that, he took a drill and did the holes into the plywood...
$10 on sale...we cut a cross over every hole.
Fabric.com white leather was 5 yards for $50 which was enough to do the headboard and platform. I used fishing wire (which we had) and bought buttons off of eBay for $8 for 60 of them and upholstery tacks for $17 for 1000. And I bought a LONG needle which I used to push the button through the hole in the padding until it hit the plywood and Matt tied it off underneath. Starting from the middle and working our way out, we made sure the folds in the fabric would go down.
We stapled the fabric to the back of the headboard and finished off with the tacks.
Lastly, we covered some $9 pieces of wood from home depot with leftover padding from headboard and tacked it 5 inches apart to create our platform structure!
