Does anyone have any advice on how to make one.. We are 98.8% sure we are going to go with a white one, since we will have a gray wall, and a white duvet cover. And we are leaving toward one with the tufts or buttons.

  1. I watched an episode of Trading Spaces once that made a headboard. They took a piece of that particle wood (I cant remember the name of it. It's letters. anyway) and covered it with quilt batting with a staple gun. Then they stretched fabric over it and staple gunned it to the back of the wood. Hang and voila. To do the buttons, they sewed them on to the headboard after the stapling. Hope that helps.
