Trend Alert : Rescued Headboards

Have you noticed lately how DIY and rescued headboards pop out everywhere on blogs, catalogs, and deco magazines? A fun, cheaper, and more original option to the conversative [and boring if you ask me] headboard. So go thrifting, trash digging and get you hands on an old piece of wood or metal, an antique door, a chicken fence, anything you can find that was not initially a headboard... and make it a headboard! How fun!
