For example, an elegant, tufted headboard would be totally out of place in a beach bedroom theme.
A tropical theme calls for something in a lighter weight with the look and feel of a breezy island with sugar sand beaches. A piece featuring handwoven native materials would be better suited for this theme than an upholstered piece.
There are several ways to DIY upholster a headboard for a bed. Simple, padded upholstery is an excellent "first project". A tufted headboard with diamond pleats and covered buttons makes a beautiful presentation but can be challenging for a person just starting out.
A beginner might make an upholstered headboard without any tufting or fancy nailhead upholstery techniques while more advanced DIYers might want to try their hand at tufted headboard using covered buttons and luxurious fabrics.
