I am desperately trying to come up with inexpensive ways to decorate my home.  Little by little, we are finally getting most of the major construction finished in our home.  We still have to finish the boys’ bathroom and a couple walls upstairs, but other than that, most of the house is complete.

Now I get to decorate, which is awesome, but a little daunting.

I feel like I am starting from scratch since we moved from our last home, because most of our furniture from our previous home doesn’t really go with this home. 

One piece of furniture that we do have from our previous home is our king four poster bed.

Here is the bed in our former master bedroom…

If you missed the before and after pictures of this room, you have got to check it out.  I completed the entire makeover with a $700 budget.  Click HERE to view.

Because of the layout of the room, I decided that our bed looked best in front of our window.  Because there was a window behind our headboard, we didn’t have to worry about how to decorate above it.

But now, our headboard sits up against a blank wood plank wall.

I had a beautiful red poinsettia wreath above our headboard for Christmas…

But now the wall is bare, which got me to thinking, “What in the world do I put there?”

I started searching online for some inspiration, and I wanted to share what I found with you.

 

It seems the most popular choice of décor for above the headboard is framed prints or pictures.

Sometimes it looks best just to leave the space above your headboard blank, especially if you have a beautiful chandelier above your bed that steals the show.
