VENUE: Reikorangi Community Hall, Waikanae

TIME: 10:30AM - 2:30PM 

COST: FROM $265 per person (does NOT include fabric)

Learn how to pad and wrap a simple rectangular headboard.

A new upholstered headboard could easily cost you about $1200. At the Mad4Mod Headboard Workshop, you have a super fun excuse to learn some basic upholstery skills AND save money! You'll be making something for your home that 100% reflects your own unique style...for a super affordable price! 

You will learn:

  • how to safely use a professional staple gun

  • how to attach foam to your headboard

  • why an electric bread knife should be in your upholstery tool box

  • what 'batting' is and why you need it

  • how to cut a corner to remove bulk

  • what 'railroading' is and why it's important - especially for a headboard!

  • how to make a fabric covered button and attach it to your project (optional)

There is an extra cost for buttoning your headboard:

SINGLE +$25, DOUBLE + $45, QUEEN +$45, KING +$50. (This extra charge will be collected after initial payment.)


  • all necessary tools to complete your project

  • your board, upholstery foam, batting and finishing cloth

  • a pair of headboard legs


  • caffeine will be provided - caffeine is 100% necessary for ALL upholstery projects (or is that just me?)



  • Because of the wildly varying cost of upholstery fabric, not to mention wildly varying tastes, FABRIC FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS NOT SUPPLIED. Click here for all the the fabric information you need!

  • Sizes available - SINGLE, KING SINGLE, DOUBLE, QUEEN & KING.
