I’ve always had an uncanny ability to visualize the END product/project even before beginning!
And what I could SEE for this was grain sack cloth.
For the TEXTURE and the CONTRADICTION!
But I didn’t have enough left—oh, poo.
I could cut, upholster, and inset a piece of ¼” plywood that would maintain the outer frame design or I could wrap right over the frame and I chose the latter FOR THIS REASON.
The frame is 56″ wide -a Full size. However, wrapping the fabric OVER the frame will make it look biGGer and it could be used with a queen-sized bed!
*There’s a 2″ discrepancy on each side -full frame to queen mattress- that becomes reduced by padding and fabric. In past design jobs I’ve secured blocks to the under side of the queen box-spring to ride in the bed-rails and keep it all in place. I don’t think anyone ever figured out the mis-match!
I used furniture webbing to keep the padding from falling through the frame, but I didn’t have enough to weave a horizontal line. When I run to the fabric store for backing/liner I’ll restock webbing and can still weave a strip through from the back side before it’s closed in. The extra securing will prevent any push-through when leaning against the headboard.
