    This was a great idea until you go to the nails – seriously, thats aweful! they will pull right out and look like crp in no time.
    Better to drill a hole in the back, sew the button through the batting/foam/plywood and orotund a washer on the back to hold it in

    Ty. Chels!! Also one more question, how can I successfully dye a light weight quilt? I only could find a white one. I have a king bed. I wanted white comforter but they were sold out. I was thinking of dying the 2 I have 1 blush color/ pastel pink, thats the smaller quilt. (Fits a double bed. But it would be OK for the end of my bed as accent color) Just buy rit dye? Is there another dye that is out there I know nothing about? I'm a little nervous. I wanted to do my main white quilt a cream or eggshell? Like more antique white than off white…. I'm just nervous and with the Washing machine I have the water starts filling only when you set the cycle then press start and the lid locks and it starts. It's a newer one but not like those really really nice ones. Like a front loader washer ( I really miss the old ones. They lasted for so long and the water didn't empty when you needed to raise the lid ) I thought maybe the laundry mat?? They have washing machines. I only have a cup dispenser to pour my bleach. Would it be OK if I used the dye in my bleach tray? Then run bleach through it only to clean it out and the machine after the process. I can't really check on it while washing or dying is in process. I don't have see through doors. And it's a water saver. I went to rinse clothes again after my washing was done on a load and the water fills only so much. It senses the weight I guess and only adds water to the clothes and not over the clothes. I don't know. Any advice you can give I would greatly appreciate it…. ty. Chels!! I love your channel and you. I want to see how you made the yarn or twine hanging lamps? I haven't seen it yet. But I'm gonna watch your videos…. I'm trying. I enter those giveaways on Instagram, but I don't know how to accurately do it. When I try to DM people it fails. I need help to figure out Instagram. I only have a smart phone…. no computer or wi-fi right now. But I never win anything…. 😭😭! Why me! Lol…. XOXO CHELS!! GREAT JOB ON THE HEADBOARD. THANKS FOR EXPLAINING STEP BY STEP THOROUGHLY. THAT REALLY HELPS. I want to start a YouTube channel but it will be awhile b4 I can. I have so many pressing needs that must be done first. And my budget is not enough right now for those needs. One day maybe. I want to blog and vlog as well. Thank you for your time….

    You would have found it a lot easier and got even better results, (not that this doesn't look nice it does xx) if you had used two sheets of thinner ply drilled the holes for the buttons on one, then used heave duty cord to pull the buttons down into the foam and stapling on the board then wrap the other ply in a dyed black dust sheet stapled down and just screwed the two together. When you don't use the resistance of the foam to form the button wells, you don't get such a nice mould. Have made six of these for people..

    That is the HARDEST part about carpentry…. being sure not to hit the wrong nail. = )
    I might recommend a piece of cardboard with a hole and slit at one side to hold it in place and keep your fingers safely away.
    Much Love

    Do you know about how much is spent on the materials needed. Everything except for the drill and stud finder and the stuff to hang it on the wall.
