Upgrade Your Headboard with a Shower Curtain

I did a quick update to my headboard. With a shower curtain.  Yes, I’m fully aware of how insane that sounds.

So, where did this crazy idea originate from?  Well, it really starts way back when I bought the original headboard 7 years ago.  It was chocolate brown and tufted.  I think I ordered it on-line from Target for a couple hundred dollars.  It was fine. There’s nothing wrong with it.  It was just sort of blah.  There is a lot of beige and chocolate brown in the bedroom and I wanted something else.  Here’s a before shot for you:

Cut to a few weeks ago and I found this shower curtain on clearance at Target.

It’s $19.99 right now, but I’m pretty sure I got it for less than that…  I ended up buying two, so I spent some amount less than $40 for what would become my fabric for my headboard slipcover.

Once I had the fabric home, it was just a matter of lining it up so the pattern matched and wrapping it around the headboard. I will be staple gunning it to the headboard at some point (like, when I buy a staple gun), but it’s actually doing a pretty decent job staying put as it is.  What I think is a very lucky benefit of using a shower curtain as a headboard is that it is sort of a different material than regular fabric.  I mean, it’s not plastic, but there is definitely some type of coating to it that I think will make it super easy to clean.  The old microfiber one was actually a pain to clean.  It collected dust and it just looked dingy at times.
