What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't get bogged down in a specific vision. The stenciling turned out awful but then I painted stripes over it and glazed it with white paint and it looked great!

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

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!

I love it! HOw fun and so creative. I love seeing different in peoples homes and so tire of seeing the same styles, colours, beige and cream. It's almost like people have become afraid of colour and art. This is awesome.
