Anjie gave this headboard to me. She originally had ribbon across it, creating large diamonds. First, I covered it with a curtain that matches the ones in my room. I used a staple gun to wrap the fabric around the back. Then, I measured where I wanted the buttons and stapled each place twice to make a +. Last, I hot glued the buttons in place and ironed out all the wrinkles. I love it so much! Thanks Anjie!!!
