    • On April 20, 2012, by jaffa - Creating an upholstered headboard is something anyone can accomplish, no matter their skill level. You will need a frame, fabric, batting and a staple gun. Spray glue is also helpful for laying the batting. Wrap the front of the frame in batting and staple the back. Do the same with your fabric and you have an upholstered headboard in a very short amount of time. Thanks. Regards, <a href="hhttp://www.federalresumewriters.net">federal resume writers</a>
