More specifically, my invention comprises a cushion conforming to the contour of the headboard and fastened thereto in the rear, in combinationwith a cover which completely encloses the head-board, the fastenings therefor, and the cushion.

In fact, the complete set-up has all of the characteristics of upholstering done by an expert, when it is well within the skill ofthe usual house wife.

means described but of equivalent means for per-' It is desired to forming the recited function-s. reserve the right to effect such changes and modifications of the invention as may come fairly within the scope of the appended claim.

I claim:
