I went to IKEA last night just to pick up 3 RIBBA frames and I had a list of a few things I wanted to check out in person. This trip was more of a scouting expedition. I wanted to check out BADALEN, an upholstered headboard. This headboard mounts directly to the wall and would be perfect for my daughter's room. I alreay have a platform bed and all I'm looking for is an upholstered headboard to soften it up.
The shape was basic enough, and I figured this would be a timeless piece that I could easily reupholster over and over again. It's $199.99, which I thought was a little steep, but I just wanted to check it out.
Boy, was I happy when I saw that it was on sale for $49.99! I think they're discontinuing it. I GOT IT! Run out to your local IKEA if you're interested too!
The blue stripe fabric doesn't even come attached, it's a slipcover which is perfect! I don't even need to use it and I can just go ahead and staple my own fabric around it. :)
I've been doing some fabric research and here are some front runners. These are all from buyfabrics.com and are less than $10.00/yd. I have my favorites. Which ones are yours?
