I recently purchased headboards for the girls' beds upon finding a fantastic deal. At 80% off the original price, they were simply too good to pass up. Furthermore, I admired them when I first spotted them online three years ago at full price, but I never would have paid that.
Now that the headboards are home, I need your help. They are mismatched, which does not bother me in the least, but I will need to reupholster them. At the local fabric store I can get beautiful fabrics for five dollars a yard, but I need some ideas on fabric pattern and color ideas. What do you think - gingham, stripe, floral, solid? Pink, green, yellow, white?
Below are photographs of the headboards as well as a picture of the bed linens which will need to match the upholstery. Finally, should I leave the wood in it's natural cherry color or paint it white?
