I ordered two headboards and I have to say that they are gorgeous and surpassed my expectations!!! Hollie was incredibly patient with me through the ordering and design process- and so helpful in ensuring that the end product was going to be exactly what I wanted, and they truly are! Really LOVE the headboards thank you The Tufted Frog!

I'm completely delighted with my new headboard. It arrived lightning fast, is light as a feather, and was easy to install. I used tape to hold the washer to the head of the screws, otherwise the washers kept slipping down to the wall. Gorgeous addition to my guest bedroom!

About

No one was more surprised than I...

The Tufted Frog's life began in Greenville, South Carolina, in a tiny addition on the back of house that we affectionately call The Love Nest. Our bedroom needed some sprucing, and I was on another DIY kick. (I've lived a lifetime of those kicks...) I checked a couple of blogs, threw in some of my own ideas, and headed off to pick up the necessary fabric and tools.

I couldn't believe what a big difference that headboard made in our struggling little room! My neighbor couldn't either, and soon had commissioned a headboard for her own home. She started bugging me about starting a business and selling these headboards, but I wasn't quite so sure. After a while of Maritza's goading, however, I timidly posted a little listing here on Etsy, showcasing my first two pieces.

Shortly thereafter, my husband received a job offer in Arizona. So we packed up our little household, said "goodbye" to The Love Nest, and headed West. Soon, I received my first headboard order - I was so surprised! The following orders kept me busy for the next few months, and have continued to do so ever since.

Probably the most unique aspect about my headboards' construction is the fact that they are built around a foamboard form. I first decided to use foam board, rather than wood, when I realized I didn't have the correct tools to cut a wooden board with. Actually, giving credit where due, it was my husband's idea...and one of the best ever. Using such a lightweight, yet sturdy material allows for much easier transportation and installation. It is also much easier to shape, and the minimal weight makes for a happy FedEx man.

I have learned and grown so much over the last couple of years. I love to look back through my photos and see the evolution of my work. It is so motivating to realize that as far as I have come in these last two years, I can grow that much more in the next two - and many more - to come. My most surprising moment (besides the surprise of this whole business) was when I received an order to construct tufted wall panels for an HGTV show! That project definitely opened my eyes to the possibilities my work offers. So I'm just trying to prepare myself for the next surprise, whatever it may be.

God has been so kind to gift me with this vocation that allows the flexibility to match my husband's odd schedule. Running a business - especially such a labor-intensive one - has many challenges. But I wouldn't trade this job for anything. Besides, there's not much else to do in a town with a population as small as ours...

I hope that my love for creating is evident in my work. And that maybe, my little normal, every-day story will inspire you to - however timidly - post your first listing.

Oh, and the name? the "frog" is from one of my nicknames...Hollie Froggie. Thanks Aunt Piggy!
