Refurbishing A Headboard

It’s relatively easy to refurbish a regular upholstered headboard. Bear in mind though that tufting and other advanced upholstery techniques will be more difficult to replicate.

Which foam you choose is up to you, but we would recommend a soft to medium feel grade. Take a look at our selection of upholstery foam sheets. There are 14 unique grades to choose from including memory foam, recon foam and much more! And, if you still can’t find what you’re looking for, be sure to contact us directly. We may still stock the grade you need.

To refurbish your headboard, start by removing the covering fabric, batting and old foam from the backboard. If you’ve chosen a new fabric, use the old covering fabric as a template for sizing. If you’re keeping the same fabric be sure to carefully remove it, so as not to cause damage.

Once the backboard is bear, take your chosen foam and use a spray adhesive to mount it. Allow to dry and then palace the batting (use new batting if the current one is damaged) and fabric over the headboard foam. Once the fabric is pulled tight over the backboard, you can use a staple gun to secure it.
