Headboard re-vision

When we first moved to our town home from St. Louis, I made an upholstered headboard.  It was OK, but I wasn't in love with the fabric, we couldn't paint the walls and again it was just OK. 

This past weekend I think I began my nesting phase as I have gotten about 10 projects done that I have been meaning to do for the past month.   One being to recover our headboard.  Friday my mom and I went fabric shopping and I came across some fabric that I immediately fell in love with.  Our master bedroom is mostly plain colors so I thought it needed some texture.  Our bedding is dark so I needed to lighten up the space.  After looking for oh about 5 minutes I went with this one and couldn't be happier. 

Here's what it started as:

and my re-vision

Same bed....same dog, different bedding and headboard cover.  It was super easy to do.  First Brendan removed all the staples for me, then I purchsed 3 yards of fabric, so I didn't have to have a seam down the middle of the headboard.  With the leftover fabric my mom is making me a throw pillow for our bed.  Then I went to town with my staple gun and about 20 minutes later..VIOLA, a facelift for our room!
Can you tell Ruby likes to be the center of attention?
