After doing some reading about how to DIY a padded headboard I was having second thoughts. They all involved two by fours and plywood... not having any power tools or place to use power tools I started rethinking my idea. I didn't want to hang pictures over the bed, but I needed something. In come inspiration from Mom. My mom has a curtain rod in our dining room where she displays quilts (new ones as she finishes them). I thought it could work behind my bed. Presto! I think it does work. I hung up the quilt my mom made for me when I graduated from Mizzou, I think it goes well with my sheets. Next up: bed skirt.
