I've been wanting an upholstered headboard for a while. I think they look really awesome and a headboard is a crucial "grown up" bed feature (feel free to disagree). I stumbled upon this awesome Ikea hack this weekend that I think is totally doable:

Step 7: Cover Bed Frame around mattress with batting and fabric, and attach head board:
What do you think? Doable?
