New Headboard

Today is my first Met Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. Visit her for more marvelous makeovers.

I never liked the headboard on this bed because it was so low, you couldn't see it for the pillows. It looked like there was no headboard at all. So, I did this............





I had an old metal room divider I had gotten from a flower shop. I couldn't find a place for it in my new house, until I got this idea. Use it as a headboard!


I think it looks pretty good, and I'm proud of myself for thinking of it.

Very nice idea. I'll have to share this with my daughter who doesn't have a headboard at all. She might find something similar. I love the red quilt on your bed too.

My hubby has clients that have just put their house on the market. He did a new stair railing, some other pieces around...so I took a glance around the house. PLEASE make those people buy headboards. Three bedrooms and not a headboard in the place. And that little shelf that runs the length of the wall in one of the rooms? Tealights!

That looks great! I love the height that it adds. Isn't it neat all the different things that can be used for headboards? I'm on the lookout for something to use in son's room.

Oh you asked me the other day about my red rug...it's a Karastan Rug called Rue de Provence. I got it at a rug shop here in Oklahoma City.
