Though it’s not exactly a headBOARD, we love this painted canvas hung on the wall at the head of a low bed. And we are inspired by the canvas Cy Twombly tacked right onto the walls of his Rome villa, ready for painting.
63-inch by 6-yards rolls of primed artist’s canvas can be found on Amazon and at art stores. Then it’s just a matter of doing your thing using acrylic or oil-base paint (and giving it plenty of time to dry).
We’re also thinking that just about any big swath of fabric could be beautiful painted with acylic paint…taking a cue from this great Wary Myers’ pillow…
…and these chairs we posted some time ago…
You need to mix acrylic with a polymer emulsion to turn it into washable fabric paint, and leave the fabric soft and pliable. You can read how to use it here and here,

One thought on “Painted Canvas Headboard…(+ pillow + chairs)…”
I’ve been wanting to do this for some time – glad for the push (and the links to resources)!
