Q&A with kubakat

Thank you!

Really great job! Show did you do the inserts on the headboard? Zooms like its fabric. If it's painted on, you're amazing! Love it! Gramma T
kubakat answered:
The top part is painted. I started with a stencil and hated the way it looked so ended blurring it with white paint and painting stripes over it. The other two panels are fabric. Stapled on over batting then used the hot glue gun on the gimp to cover the staples. It was quite a project!
