More Design Ideas
Just think of all the decorative objects that can be made into a headboard--the list is endless.
- Hang large square floor cushions on your wall, then push your bed up against the cushions.
- Purchase an inexpensive fuzzy rug at a home store; using a staple gun, attach it to a section of medium-density fiberboard. With screws, attach the fiberboard to your bed frame, like a regular headboard.
- In a kid's room, mount a section of white picket fence flanked by two small fence posts to the wall. Push the bed against the "fence."
"Make a Mantel Your Headboard" is from the November 2004 issue of Southern Living.
