Not Your Grandmother's Headboard!

 The headboard on your bed doesn't necessarily have to be a "typical" headboard from a "typical" furniture can create a headboard out of almost anything that makes the bed the center of attention in your room.  Here are some creative ideas using vintage architectural pieces to highlight the bed in your master bedroom or guest room.

A row of oars would make a fun headboard in your cabin or cottage bedroom.

A fireplace mantel creates a nice ledge for some accessories, as well as framing the bed to make it a focal point.

Here the inside of the mantel is padded and upholstered to make a softer lounging spot for reading in bed.

A large tri-fold mirror creates a fantastic headboard, as well as making the room appear larger and lighter.

 Double shutters make great headboards for twin beds, adding height and a background for the added architectural mirrors.

Once again a large arched mirror creates a glamorous headboard in this bedroom.

A pair of old doors become the headboard for this bed at a lake cottage.

Think outside the box, and create a headboard from something unexpected......and give your bedroom a "one-of-a-kind" personality!  You are limited only by your imagination.
