Suzanne's new headboard

Please welcome Suzanne from So Stinkin' Cute, she is sharing her adorable new diy headboard with us today!

Thanks Leah...I am thrilled about guest posting here at The Way We Are! I just love your taste and the DIY's you do....I'm especially partial to your new white kitchen. A white kitchen is at the top of my "must have" list, and I am currently in the process of persuading my husband that we need a white kitchen, even though we bought our house brand spanking new, this past November. I will keep you all posted when I get my kitchen!

In the meantime, I just finished making a fabric covered, king-size headboard! It was much easier than I thought it would be, and I plan on making one for my little girl, very soon. I picked a bubble gum pink fabric from JoAnn Fabrics, of course, I waited till it went on sale. At $53.99 a yard, it would have been much more expensive! Here is the before picture

and here is the after


I'm thrilled about having a little piece of luxury in my kid-filled life! I think the pink looks great against my wall of black and white painted mirrors

it gives off a huge pop of color, and if my husband was okay with a bubble gum pink headboard, I had to go with it!

If you would like to see all the details, you can check it out here:

This is my favorite DIY I have done so far, and am having a great time decorating our home while hanging out with my kiddos. If you want to see more of my life, you can check out my blog, So Stinkin' Cute at

Oh how cute! I love the fabric, it's a great choice! I think pink headboards are the way to go, but I may be a tad bit bias! :) Have a great weekend!
