Design dilemma...


I just want to lay in bed all day today. I suppose it has something to do with the fact that I'm obsessed by our lack of a headboard (above). I saw the image below on emmas designblogg and the bottom image on Design Sponge. I love both "headboards" for a few reasons: these are both inexpensive solutions; I wouldn't have to commit to a headboard long-term; and they both fit with our quirky design sensibilities. I bought the materials to make both and just can't decide which would work better in our bedroom. What do you all think?

What is that, green felt? I don't like it, especially with the lights plopped in the middle, but I love love LOVE the stenciled painting! Can't wait to see what you do!

I think the one below (the painting of a headboard) would look fantastic!

Oh wow. That bottom "headboard" is so cool. I think I might be heading to the art store soon! Such an easy solution to not having a headboard, and it looks very chic.

Hmm…the silhouette idea is fun, but I think the strong vertical element of the first one would work really well in your space (especially without those lights going through it).

I'm thinking the second one, but with a different kind of headboard painted on. the ornateness of the victorian one doesn't seem to fit as well as something more streamlined could.

what about hanging a curtain rod several feet above the bed and draping a quilt over it, or vintage fabric. . . or whatever your heart desires!
I like the first one, but that was when I thought it was green chalkboard, because (for whatever reason) I really wanted to paint our headboard with chalkboard paint for a long long time. The Mr. never went for it.
