DIY Leather Woven Headboard 20 2048x - DIY Leather Woven Headboard

“This DIY Leather Woven Headboard is giving me all the feels”

You can say that I’ve been bitten by the leather bug because I am all about these leather projects. This is my second leather project of the week and I am in love.

“This post is sponsored by The Home Depot.”

Leather Woven Headboard 2 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardI don’t usually do headboards but I am so glad I decided to tackle this fun DIY because Im so satisfied with the way it came out. The best part was that this Leather Woven Headboard was only $80. Now you can’t beat that.

Leather Woven Headboard 4 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardLast week I made a DIY Leather Woven Bench and it was the inspiration for this headboard and I’m not going to lie, I have a few other projects in mind with the same kind of technique. The measurements for this headboard are for a Queen Headboard, but you can add on or take away from the wooden frame to make it whatever size you’d like. Now let’s get into it.

Dimensions

Ryobi 70 Piece Impact Driving Kit

Craft Scissors

Corner Braces

Staple Gun

3/4″ staples

Kreg Right Angle Clamp

Be sure to check out the how-to video before reading through the steps.

Step 1: Assemble The Bed Frame

The first step for the DIY Leather Woven Headboard was to first assemble the frame. I used four 2x2s to assemble the bed frame along with 2 1/2″ pocket hole screws.Screen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.35.29 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardTo assist with the assembly, I used my Kreg Right Angle Clamp to get those pocket holes in. To make the headboard a little more sturdy, I decided to add corner braces to the four sides of the headboard.Screen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.35.50 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardTo help me drill in the corner braces, I used a Philip head bit from my Ryobi 70 Piece Impact Driving Kit. It includes impact rated bits with hex shank for impact drivers and drills and includes a magnetic screw guide, nut drivers and socket adaptors.DIY Leather Woven Headboard 10 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardI also like that the case is a tough modular case for easy removal and storage. When the assembled frame is finished it should look similar to this.DIY Leather Woven Headboard 9 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven Headboard

Step 2: Apply the Vinyl to the Headboard Frame

Screen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.48.29 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardI first began marking the lines on my vinyl fabric by using a 2×2 and a fine point sharpie. If you want to make your leather strips bigger just make sure you mark them evenly.Screen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.49.01 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardOnce the strips were marked, I began cutting the fabric strips using my craft scissors. Any good pair of scissors should work here. The vinyl fabric was really easy to cut through.

Screen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.49.19 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardThen I begin attaching the leather strips, one by one, to one side of the bed frame. I attached the strips using my Staple Gun and used one of the corner braces as a way to measure the spacing between the leather strips.Screen Shot 2019 06 08 at 5.15.09 AM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardOnce one side is secured down, pull the leather strip to the other side with a good snug and secure it down into place with your Staple Gun. It should look like this when you’re done.Leather Woven Headboard 13 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardOnce one full side was secured down, I began securing down the leather strips on the top of the headboard, using my staple gunScreen Shot 2019 06 07 at 9.49.40 PM 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardOnce the top leather strips are secured down on the DIY leather headboard, you can begin weaving the leather strips through the secured strips, alternating each weave one by one. As you can see, this was the fun part because I was having way too much fun.

Leather Woven Headboard 12 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardAfter weaving all the way down, you will need to secure the leather strips to the headboard with your staple gun and cut off any extra fabric to give it a nice clean look.DIY Leather Woven Headboard 15 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardOnce you attach the strips, your DIY headboard is finished! and it looks pretty darn good.Leather Woven Headboard 14 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardI can’t be any happier with how this DIY Leather Woven Headboard turned out. I am now questioning whether or not I need one for my bedroom and let’s not forget that this headboard was only $80. Now that takes the cake. Let’s take another look at how it came out.DIY Leather Woven Headboard 20 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardI am so glad I opted to go with the green, instead of the regular brown color, it gives this space so much contrast, and the green looks lovely against that natural wood.DIY Leather Woven Headboard 16 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven HeadboardThe weave pattern is just out of this world. I hope you enjoyed this project and I can’t wait to see you try it out.Leather Woven Headboard 2 1024x1024 - DIY Leather Woven Headboard

20 cool diy garden bed and planter ideas 5d7b542762f8b - 20 Cool DIY Garden Bed and Planter Ideas

Gardening is a wonderful hobby, but also one that requires a lot of time, knowledge and dedication. While some people only have gardens for vanity or because they inherited the garden with their house, true hobbyist gardeners love to tend to their plants and watch them flourish.

Having said that, sometimes you need to be creative in your garden, either to fill a small space or get a different look that breaks the normal patterns you see in every other garden.

Arranging your flower beds in a unique way or customizing your planters can do wonders for the aesthetic of your garden. Not only that, though, creating this unique garden setting will challenge you and allow your creativity to flow in unexpected ways.

This project doesn’t need to come entirely from your gray mass though. In fact, we have put this article together to help you get started.

15 cool diy coffee station ideas 5d7b542b22ea6 - 15+ Cool DIY Coffee Station Ideas

Coffee is pretty much a universal drink in the modern world. While people from different cultures may make, serve and drink it in different ways. it is pretty much safe to say that you can have coffee in virtually any country around the world.

Some people might prefer to have their espressos or lattes out of home and on the go, but it is always nice and important to be able to make and serve coffee when you’re hosting family or other guests, if nothing else.

Most people opt for small espresso machines nowadays, which they can set in a corner of their kitchen so it stays out of the way. Having a real coffee station, complete with the coffee machine, pods, cups, mugs. sweeteners and spoons is much nicer though, especially if you have one with wheels, which you can bring over to the entertainment area during parties.

So if you have the funds, space and are willing to go for it, we’d definitely recommend it for you to get or build a coffee station.

In fact, we’ve put these Cool DIY Coffee Station Ideas together to help make up your mind.
