In my bedroom, I have lovely nailhead headboard, and above my bed I have a classic sunburst mirror, yet I have always felt that something was missing.
I was thinking about maybe hanging some simple curtain panels hung from a rod above the headboard, to create a more dramatic effect. Maybe something like this? I like the way it frames the mirror.
I also like the way it can frame the bed and make it look so inviting and cozy!
Using curtains to frame a bed for a canopy is nothing new.
However, the fabric and labor required to create a canopy is intensive. Framing just the headboard is easy and inexpensive with a bit of the same effect. Call me lazy!!
Please play decorator for me . . . Should I try it?
I will keep you posted.
