diy upholstered box spring

Surprise! I usually give you all a clue if I'm up to diy, at least an inspiration photo
or sneak peek of fabric...well you've seen the fabric.
Remember the glen plaid suiting I used for the upholstered headboard in detail boy's room,
I had enough left to cover the box spring.

Here's the inspiration...



housebeautiful.com

and ours...




...and a few others I found throughout the blogosphere.

Love how you eliminated the need for a dust ruffle to cover the box spring. This made it look like you have a complete custom bed, not just an upholstered headboard. Super smart!

Now that is attention to detail, and it looks great.

I love the tailored look of the covered box spring for a masculine room. And cute staging with the Wall Street Journal and the plaid :)

Holly said...

Girl! It's such a great detail and sounds easy too I guess? I wish you lived closer to me so you could hop on over and help out with some DIYs ;) And was the WSJ staging or does your boy really enjoy reading that? Impressive if he does - but I did see an Open feature so maybe he was catching up on that. Another project to add to my "someday" list.

Hi Pam!

Is that Annie Bahler's up at the top? I was able to pick lots of furniture up from her before she started selling to the trade only. Love her style!

Did you use the boxspring from ikea? You mentioned the metal legs are from there but the asked lady told me I needed to use their boxspring. Just wondering if I can rig it myself:)

Hi Karen - Yes, we used the Ikea box spring. All of the information is in this post:
