Soft head of the bed with your own hands «Coach coupler»
The coach coupler is a decoration method thatIt was widely used in the 18th century to decorate carriages (hence the name). Today, this method is used for upholstery of upholstered furniture and interior items. The modern name of the carriage carpet is Capitone. In order for the result to look really impressive, it is recommended to use expensive, rich material that looks good with numerous folds, for example, leather, velvet, velor, artificial suede. Light cotton in a small flower is a completely inappropriate fabric. The pattern of the screed can be made in the form of squares or diamonds, as rivets used buttons, covered with the same cloth, beads, crystals in color or contrast. Materials and tools:
- Plywood for the base (furniture panel);
- Quality fabric (with a margin, 25-30 cm longer than the length and width of the plywood base);
- Foam rubber with a thickness of about 5 cm (according to the size of the plywood sheet);
- Fitted buttons with an eyelet;
- Drill for drilling plywood;

- Glue is universal;
- Strong lace (rope, twine, to pass into the eye of the button);

Progress Take a sheet of plywood, you can useRectangular or cut an interesting shape. In this example, two shields are used: 200 cm by 60 cm and 140 cm by 60 cm. Cut out the foam by the size of the plywood base. Mark the place of fastening the buttons on the foam rubber, for example, in three rows in a staggered order. Then, with a sharp knife, we cut out holes in the foam under the buttons. An interesting way to make holes -Use a heated metal tube. Heat the tube on the stove for 3-4 minutes, then drill holes with rapid movements. At one time it will be possible to make 2-3 holes, then heat the tube again for 15-20 seconds. Before this, be sure to place a board under the foam rubber, so as not to spoil the floor. Put the foam rubber on the plywood and mark the holes for the holes with a pencil. Drill holes with a drill bit on wood with a diameter of 8 mm. Glue foam rubber to the plywood. Make sure that the holes on the foam rubber and in the plywood match. On top, put a layer of sintepon with a margin of 3-5 cmEach side. On the sintepon, lay the fabric with a margin of at least 10 cm on each side. Turn the plywood over and fix the fabric with a furniture stapler on the back. Prepare the buttons. You can wrap them in cloth yourself or take them to the workshop. In each button, thread a string with a minimum length of 15 cm and tie a knot. 62 buttons were needed for this project. Take the hook for knitting and insert it into the hole. From the side of the plywood. From the front, on the side of the fabric, grope for the hook. Check with a ruler the distance from the adjacent button and make a small hole with a manicure scissors. Hook the hook with a button and thread it into the hole. Stretch the cord well and secure it securely to the back. Secure it with screws and hang it on the wall. Done!

Materials and tools:
- Sheet of plywood;
- Cut of dense fabric (in this project we used canvas for paintings);
- Glue (in the project spray-glue was used);
- Sintepon or batting;
- Furniture stapler.
Work progress Cut out a rectangle of the correct size from the plywood sheet. Put 3-4 layers of batting or sintepon, leaving a margin of 10 cm on the sides. Using an aerosol adhesive, glue the first layer of batting to the plywood, then the next layers to the previous one. Attach the batting staples to the back side, pulling the fabric well. Turn the headboard over. Sprinkle the surface of the batting spray glue and start with one hand, gently unroll the fabric to the batting. Good Burst and straighten the fabric to avoid bubbles, wrinkles and imperfections. After the glue dries, attach the canvas to the back of the plywood. When pulling the fabric well, wrap it around the frame and fasten it with a furniture stapler. With the help of nails, you can make anyOrnament, including imitating coach coupler. For this head of the bed made a neat little frame around the perimeter. To do this, mark with a pencil two dots in adjacent corners at equal distance from the sides. Knock the carnations there, but not until the end, and so,To stick out above the surface. Tie a string around the cap of one nail, tighten and tie around the second. So we made a straight line, so as not to draw on a light cloth with a pencil. Then, with a pencil along the line, mark the places for driving the nails at an equal distance from each other. Make small marks that will block the nail cap. Nail down the nails. Instead of nails, you can use furniture buttons. Attach the headboard to the wall using fasteners.
Soft headboard with your own hands, cushions, imitation tiles
Materials and tools:
- Sheet of plywood large rectangular for the base (in the project 150 cm by 75 cm);
- Small plywood squares (for this project 18 pieces of 25 25 cm size were needed);
- Cut fabric;
- Furniture stapler;
Proceed as follows. Prepare the plywood parts. In large building supermarkets, you can ask that you cut the plywood into pieces of the right size. Cut a piece of cloth into 18 squares (in your case there may be a different amount). The squares should be with a margin of 5-10 cm on each side. Place the plywood squares on the middle of the fabric. Using a furniture stapler, attach the edges of one side. Be careful that the bracket is not pierced through the plywood with the fabric. It is possible to insert brackets not much at an angle. Make a crease in the corner, tighten the fabric well and fasten the corner with the staples. So, you fixed one side and two corners,Making a semblance of a "pocket". Now, adding a staple on each side, fill the space between the plywood and the cloth with batting or a sintepon. Try to close to the edges of almost no filler, and in the middle was a plump "hill." Filling the square with a sintepon and fixing the sides, just fix the last remaining side and corners with the staples. Similarly, make the upholstery of the remaining squares. If the fabric has a pattern, try to make it the same on all parts. Also you can use different fabrics, creating a multicolored composition-mosaic. When all the squares are ready, lay them onA large sheet of plywood and glue with a universal adhesive. Watch for the correct arrangement of the pattern. Try not to have a long distance between the squares, the joints should be barely visible. More information about beds please read at http://www.vegas.ua
