Fabric Headboards

When Pitter Patter moved out of her crib into a “big girl bed”, I was left with a decorating dilemma. She has a tiny room – only 11’X11′. And it’s sort of an odd 11’X11′. The only way to give her any room for play was to go with two twin beds.

I looked high and low for headboards that would work. Everything I found was too big for the space. There simply wasn’t enough room to hold two beds with headboards and footboards, a dresser, a bookshelf, and a chair – and even those pieces were the bare basics for a little girl’s room!

When a decorator friend mentioned that she was doing fabric headboards for a client, I knew immediately that it would work for us as well. It would allow me to somewhat customize the size of my headboards to better fit the little space. It would also allow me to choose the pattern I wanted to use. Win-win for me!

I began to scour design blogs, decorating magazines, and any other place I could think of for inspiration ideas. I discovered DecorPad, which gave tons of ideas of beautiful rooms.

I can’t wait to get started on this little project. I think it’s going to work out perfectly for a little girl’s room!


  1. Hi Ash, Ann Rotherham made fabric headboards for her kids rooms (it looks adorable!) if you need some tips! Love these ideas you posted!

  2. Hey Ashley,
    Thanks for the tip about decor pad. It makes my heart beat faster–like all the really good vices do. If I can manage my addiction I think it will be a great source … but I totally thought that first pic was Pitter Pat’s new room. I was disappointed b/c it’s wonderful. You should make it look exactly like that!!! Good luck. If you never hear tell of me again, you’ll know I couldn’t ever shut it down–G
