A Headboard Alternative

If you don't have a headboard for your bed & are stuck for an idea of how to achieve the look of a headboard without the expense, here are some great alternatives for you. 

Picture frames

I like this idea for a couple of reasons: 
The photographs/images can be changed seasonally or with the purchase of new bed linen. 
Therefore you can change the complete look/feel/colour scheme of a room relatively simply.
Frames can be attached to the wall using the new 3M adhesives which are good for renters. 
I use these in my home because I change things around so often.

European Pillows 

Propping european pillows against the wall is possibly the simplest way to create height 
at the end of the bed. 

Using Shutters/Doors
Above and below. Cost effective and simple. This also gives some 
great natural textures & finish to the room. 

Canvas Artwork

Individual, simple & easy to create. 
Co-ordinate with your bed linen. 
Brilliant for a teenage girls room as they can personalise their space with 
their own handiwork. 

So, there's just a few ideas but really...  
The sky's the limit in terms of what you can create with just a little imagination.
