Hide CaptionShow CaptionPadded rectangels of medium-density fiberboard give the headboard a unique touch.
A padded headboard is easy to make, and with a few simple tricks, it can look like high-end design. Design coordinator Spencer Anderson starts with a sheet of medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and paints it a deep chocolate brown. He cuts 10 rectangles out of MDF and then cuts one-inch thick foam just slightly smaller than the wood rectangles. When the silk is upholstered to the wood rectangle, it creates a beveled edge. Placing those next to each other creates a contrasting rectangle in the center of the dark-brown panel and gives the entire headboard more dimension.
