Obviously, I am a fan of the DIY world. I created a headboard for my master suite and one for my daughter. I like the attention they draw when you walk into the room. They also leave more space in the room than a bed with head and foot board. I left off the pillows so you could get a good look at the headboard.
For my daughters, I used a dresser mirror frame. When I received this it didn't have the mirror. So, once again I added lots of batting then covered it in a pink velvet fabric.
