Pull back the batting and spray a generous amount of fabric adhesive on the plywood surface. Place the batting firmly back on to the plywood.
Flip the headboard over, so batting is facing down, and attach the batting to the back of the headboard. Begin by stapling at center point of each side, and then at each corner, pulling the batting tautly around frame. After sides and corners are stapled in place, continue securing the batting to frame by working from center point to corner. Trim excess material.
Lay Out Canvas and Spray Adhesive
Flip the headboard back over, and drape the painter's canvas on top of the batting, centering it so there are extra inches of canvas on all sides of the headboard. Pull back the painter's canvas and spray the fabric adhesive directly to the top layer of batting. Press the painter's canvas on top of the batting, making sure there are no bumps or wrinkles in the canvas.
