Hey, that looks great. It looks like the same color whisper vinyl I am using in my boat. I'm getting ready to do the mid-berth headboard this weekend. It only has 5 panels. Was it difficult working with the folds? Yours turned out great!

Thanks, (the picture really does it justice). Because of the curve, the vinyl puckered a bit. The folds were easy enough to work with, but it was somewhat difficult to keep them smooth. If I did it again... which I won't... I would cover each panel individually.
I just finished covering the guest stateroom headboard, will post when we get it back in the boat.

The idea you mentioned of doing each one individually had crossed my mind too, the current fabric on the headboard folds nicely, but I was concerned about the bulkiness of folding the vinyl the same way. I might give your idea of doing each cushion separately a whirl and see how it turns out.
Thanks
Robyn
