Mantel me this. The design team at The Old Painted Cottage takes its company’s name seriously; just look at this headboard made from a 6-foot-wide fireplace mantel. An upholstered center ensures that pillows don’t fall into the surround’s empty cavity.
I was surprised to see this well-worn fireplace mantel repurposed as a headboard. it′s a really great idea that Mike and I are going to have to consider. The look you create will depend on the mantel you find. It could be a huge old oak surround antique cast iron or a brightly painted contemporary design.
My 10-year-old grandson who is hovering over my shoulder as I write this has tasked me with re-creating this headboard for his bedroom. And can you blame him? If your youngster feels the same and you want to accomplish this really bomb-diggity look on a budget haunt your local thrift stores and garage sales. But if your budget allows take a look at Skateboards.com where you can find a myriad of colorful and fascinating boards from which to choose. If you have skateboards hanging out in your garage use them. You will add instant history to the room along with eye-catching style.
