When Paul moved in, we inherited his california king sized bed,
which has his parents' headboard from times gone by.
He agreed to let me cover it and make something with it,
but I agreed to "do no harm" and wouldn't staple or glue anything onto it.
So, even though it took a little more work,
mom & I covered it in foam and taped it with duck tape.
Then we (and by "we" I mean "she") sewed a slip cover for it
made from a flat sheet.
Last but not least,
I covered some buttons and we added those.
It didn't turn out too bad!
