Fabric-Covered Headboard – Estee and Judd


Estee and Judd spent a weekend a few weeks ago constructing a fabric-covered headboard from Britex home decorating fabric. We love the creative ingenuity they displayed when arranging the sea creature montage. Estee and Judd were fabulous enough to document this project from start to finish, so look for more on the headboard project later this week!
