Transform a thrift store find into a unique soccer bed.  This is a sponsored post with Goodwill San Antonio.

My son is crazy about soccer, so I thought it would be fun to make a soccer themed bed for his room.  I found a very sturdy solid wood headboard and footboard at Goodwill San Antonio.  With some paint and fabric I gave this bed a complete makeover!

Step seven: Use the soccer pattern template to cut the black Oly-Fun fabric. I imported the file and used my cutting machine to cut the fabric, but you could also trace it onto the fabric and cut it.
