I do not have very detailed instructions on how I did this hack since it’s already very detailed in the referenced blogs and all over the internet. It may be helpful to know I used Kravet Perfect Plains for the material and I used these upholstery nails.
The details of my upholstered bed that I will dish about are…
I found that I didn’t need the nail spacer or the upholstery hammer that was recommended on Cuckoo 4 Design.
The legs are not perfect but you don’t notice it at all (unless you get down and take a picture of it!). I just used some teak oil on them since I had it sitting around. Do that days before you start adding fabric!
