Rubie Green-inspired padded headboard, yellow!

I love Rubie Green.  So many beautiful prints, organic cotton, so many things to do with them, $90/yard.  See the pretties?
I love the yellow and black.  They have so many other great patterns.  I love Rubie Green!  So when I saw this yellow print on the clearance at JoAnn ($3 a yard, then half off of that on their weekend church) and bought 3 1/2 yards or so at $1.50 a yard.  It's not as heavy, I think it's quilting fabric, but it channels the same attitude.
As part of my spring bedroom re-decorating project, I recovered my padded fake leather headboard that I made with the yellow!  I made covered buttons and everything.  I attached them by looping the thread through bobbypins on the back.  Not very scientific, but it worked.
I love the cheerful yellow and white!  I will have to do more as I continue to redecorate the bedroom.  I'm aching for some graphic prints... zig zags, maybe?
Stay tuned for more bedroom design updates!


  1. Nice job! I've used spare buttons instead of bobby pins when making my upholstered headboard.

  2. Very Nice! I want to tackle one of these projects in the future :)

  3. Ooh, that is so nice. I've been wanting to make myself a headboard for almost 3 years now. You've inspired me to give it a try!
