Deputy Art Di­rec­tor Philippe Blanchin turns his hand to at-home head­board up­hol­stery

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Classifieds -

I wanted to cre­ate a ho­tel look by in­cor­po­rat­ing a large head­board to give the guest bed­room drama and fo­cus. They can be ex­pen­sive, so I thought I would have a go at mak­ing one my­self. I started by cutting a piece of MDF to size, then I at­tached fire-re­tar­dant wad­ding to the board us­ing a sta­ple gun. In the same way, I fixed the fab­ric in po­si­tion, leav­ing a 20-cen­time­tre border around the edge for a con­trast­ing ma­te­rial. Where the two fab­rics join, I cov­ered the sta­ples with up­hol­stery pins to cre­ate a neater fin­ish. I fixed brack­ets to the back of the MDF and then hung it on the wall, push­ing the bed up close to se­cure it in po­si­tion.
