Denver was glorious!
I worked on the chairs and have only a little painting left. Yay!
I have a fun, not your typical, semi-reveal planned for Friday!
In the meantime, I've had a few questions about the upholstered box spring,
but since you've seen ours way too many times here is an inspiration photo
along with my details.
We started with this Ikea Sultan Aram Foundation ($100) and Sultan Stainless Legs ($15)
Measure the perimeter of the frame + 5 inches (that will be the length of fabric you need)
Measure the height of the frame + 5 inches (that will be the width of fabric you need)
Our height was 8" + 5" allowance = 13" width
For a Twin frame I used 1 3/4 yards of 54" width fabric.
Next I sewed the lengths together to give me one piece the entire length of the perimeter of
the frame. To make it easier to match my pattern I folded the fabric and ironed a crease.
With right sides together, I followed the crease line keeping my pattern aligned.
Press seam after you've sewn it together.
I ironed and starched the entire length, creasing the top and bottom edges along the
lines in the pattern. This gave me a guide to use ensuring my pattern would end up
straight. It was well worth the extra time!
I used the tips from Jenny @ Little Green Notebook here for help with my corners.
Continue around the frame stapling the top and bottom as you go.
When you reach the point where you started fold the fabric under and staple
the top and bottom.
