I get such a thrill out of hearing from people who have used one of my DIY projects as inspiration for their own. Without a question, the most popular DIY project on my entire website is the diamond tufted headboard.
Hardly a day goes by that I don’t get a comment on that post, a question about the instructions, an e-mail asking for advice, or a picture from someone who just completed their headboard and wanted to share it with me. I love it! I love it all, comments, questions, pictures, all of it, because it means that y’all aren’t just reading my blog and website, but y’all are actually putting the info to good use. So keep ‘em coming!
So this weekend, I was excited to hear from Melissa, who used the diamond-tufted headboard instructions to create an amazing ottoman for her family room.
Isn’t that amazing?! She said that her husband built the base with basic lumber from Lowe’s and unfinished legs that they bought online.
I really don’t think I ever would have guessed that it was a DIY project. Great job, Melissa (and Melissa’s hubby)!!
