Sagging Head board

The top of the head board in my 1998 Alpine was attached to the mirrored wall with velcro. It will no longer stay attached even with new velcro.

The bottom of the headboard has a flap of the vinyl upholstery material which is screwed to the wall below the mirrors.

Any one have a simple solution?

I don't want to remove or replace the head board at this time,

We just built a new one from some scrap 5/8" plywood, foam and wife's choice of fabric.
Left the mirrors and simply covered them with large pcv ceiling tiles glued with adhesive and painted.
The original headboard was osb and 1.125 million staples. Don't even attempt to recover it...
Screwed the new headboard to the original screw holes and used a few dabs of construction adhesive on the upper part, propped for 24 hours with 2x2s against the slid back mattress. Four hour upgrade, happy wife.

Thanks for the input and the pictures. I now have some ideas about improving mine.
Yours looks very nice.

GMC,
If you just want to secure yours for now, you could remove the 4 headboard screws and pull the headboard away from the wall, then apply new industrial strength velcro and put it back in place. If your old fabric is not gripping the velcro, add a couple of staples through the velcro.
And, if your headboard screws are like mine were, they are not holding anymore, so make new holes when you put them back in.

PS, that alpine 36 wall looks cool!
