THREE – “Probably the simplest idea of all is to hang a huge graphic behind your bed,” according to Houzz contributor, Natalie Myers.   “Vintage school maps are a fantastic fit because they tend to run big, and it’s hard to find wall space for them elsewhere. What better wall space than the big blank area above the bed?”

FOUR – Basic materials from Home Depot and a weekend of the family working together created this Reclaimed Wood Headboard design from Silver Pennies. All materials cost a bit over $89.00…not too shabby!
