I mean, I even ordered fabric swatches like I’m some kind of interior decorating superstar.
However, between then and now, I’ve come to some realizations: One, we have two cats. Two, our cats have claws. Three, our cats would likely shred an upholstered headboard and then I’d have to kill them (not really, don’t freak, but I’d be sad if I paid big bucks for something nice and the kitties turned it to crap).
So, headboard ideas, Round Two. I’m toying with some ideas:
Using a Screen:
Like, maybe, this one (or two, as our bed is king size) from World Market?
We could do all manner of fanciful screen, as long as we could open it kind of flat and affix it to the wall so the cats don’t knock it over and kill us in our sleep (which, actually, would be kind of ironic as I threatened their death earlier in this post).
Using a Gate:
You think I’m crazy, but how cool would this thing be hanging length-wise on the wall?
Or perhaps two of these babies, standing super-tall over your bed?
I’m a genius, I tell you. (Both gates pictured here are from Al Egypt Gift Shops)
Using Marquee Letters:
I’m a little obsessed with H’s and W’s. Look at this one:
Raw, industrial beauty. Little Fish Designs also sells versions that light up!
Awwwww, snap! Love it!
I’m still considering all things vaguely rectangular and hang-on-the-wall-able. I particularly love the idea of reusing something, so don’t be surprised if I find an old door in an alley and scrap all the ideas above.
