DIY Cushion Headboard

A new headboard can make all the difference in revamping your bedroom into the stylish oasis you’ve been dreaming about. Here, an outdoor bench cushion was repurposed into a sleek, minimalist-inspired headboard by wrapping it in good-looking fabric (this blogger chose denim) and hanging it with leather straps above the bed. It’s really that easy!
