FAQ - Help for Your Project
How long should it take me to finish my headboard kit?
Because our upholstered headboard kits are ready to cover right out of the box, they can truly be an afternoon project.
Do I need special tools or a hot glue gun to finish my headboard kit?
No - all you will need is a pair of scissors, a standard duty staple gun, and a Phillips head (star) screwdriver.
Do I have to cut any wood or glue any foam to the headboard kit to get it ready for fabric?
No, your newly purchased headboard kit is "ready to cover" right out of the box.
Will I need to sew the fabric?
This can definitely be a "no-sew" project, depending on the size and style of headboard chosen and the fabric you choose to use.
Will it be hard to put staples into the headboard when I attach my fabric?
Absolutely NOT! Anywhere you attach fabric to the headboard, there is an "easy stapling strip™" that you staple into, therefore using the stapler seems effortless, adjusting for mistakes is a snap and in the future the "easy stapling strip™" makes it simple to change fabric.
What if I get tired of the fabric I have used and want to make a change?
Not to worry! Our headboard kits are designed to be covered repeatedly. As described above, the "easy stapling strip™" makes it effortless to remove old fabric and easily recover it with new fabric.
How do I install my new headboard?
- Normally you would install your bolstered or non-bolstered headboard with the coverable legs supplied. You will need to provide us with the measurement from the floor to the top of your mattress in order for us to manufacture the legs the correct height for your particular mattress set. The legs are attached to the headboard with the screws provided and are slotted to allow attachment to the bed frame with the provided hardware. The bed and headboard would still need to be pushed back against the wall, as it is NOT designed to be freestanding away from the wall and supporting a persons weight.
- Alternatively, you can attach the legs to the headboard and simply lean the headboard against the wall and push the bed against the legs to hold it in place.
- A wall mounting bracket can be supplied instead of the legs as an option. If desired for a small additional charge, we can provide both legs and a wall bracket for the security of wall-mounting with the finished look of covered legs.
- Your paneled headboard is wall-mounted using supplied brackets that allow easy installation and removal.
Can I get a taller headboard?
We are certainly happy to work with you to make the headboard you want. If you want the body of the headboard to be taller (not just the legs higher), we can do that ... there will be an upcharge and the shipping may increase. In addition, we may recommend wall mounting if the increase is significant. Contact us for details.
I have a different design in mind. Can you make it for me?
If you have an idea for a design that's not one of our standard shapes, please contact us ... we'll need a sketch, a picture or a web site reference that shows what you are considering. Some designs may not be suitable to make as a kit. We can evaluate yours, discuss it with you and quote you a price. Once you decide to proceed, a deposit will be required.
It looks easy, but I really don't have the time to cover it myself. Can you help?
Yes, we provide a headboard covering service. You would ship us your fabric of choice, we will cover it for you and ship you a beautiful, complete headboard - ready to install. Please call us for details.
