Update a headboard using a curtain

This headboard had seen better days.  It had a few broken pieces and the paint job wasn't the best.  Yet, despite all that, it had potential.
I started by cutting off to top portion of the headboard.  It got a good cleaning as well.

I cut a piece of foam to size then laid out the curtain I used.  Yes, you heard right, a curtain.  Our Goodwill gets things Target cannot or did not sell and then sells them for cheap.  I grabbed a pair up and this is the only one I have left.
I flipped it over and placed it where I wanted it.

I pulled it tight from all sides and tucked the ends under as I stapled it.    Once I was finished stapling, I decorated the headboard some nail head trim tacks I had.  They were waiting for a project just like this.
That's better!  Now can  you see the potential?
