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!
Cuckoo 4 Design was awesome detailing how to get the edge of the headboard looking super sharp and professional using Dritz upholstery tack strip.
Love the results and it’s perfect to finish out the room!
