Latest Project + DIY Tufted Headboard

Hey lovelies!  It's been so long since I've written and I've been so missing connecting with you.  I'm hoping to get more regular with the blogging in the coming months.  I wanted to give you a sneak peek into my latest project, but also wanted to share with you my latest DIY project, how to make your own tufted headboard. I've made quite a few headboards in my day, but never have I before tackled a tufted headboard.  I wanted to make one for my latest client because I knew it would completely transform his bedroom.  I watched all the DIY videos on you tube...and to be quite honest, most of them sucked.  They were made with flimsy materials or the tufting was done poorly and when I deliver a piece to a client, it has to be perfect.  Because in the end, every bit of work I do is a reflection on me, right?  So...I did some more digging, some more you tubing and finally found a video worth watching.  And guess what?  So random, but this woman's business is actually in my town!  It's got over 300,000 views, and it's because it's awesome.  So....I recommend you follow my tips below if you'd like to try making your own, but ALSO watch her video.  You can view it here.

In the meantime....here's that sneak peek I promised you.  My client lives in NYC, he's an entrepreneur and always traveling. It was really important to me to make his home a true reflection of who he is, his style...so when he comes home it feels like a breathe of fresh air.  It's clean, modern, comfort with sleek, stylish and artistic accents = so him.  :)

Enjoy!  And as always, please "share" and "like" if you enjoy and leave your comments below.  I LOVE hearing from you!
