Alternate Headboard Ideas

A headboard doesn't have to be traditional, or even necessarily a piece of furniture.  A multitude of alternate headboards have popped up and can be used anywhere from a child's room to an elegant master bedroom retreat.  With very few limitations for these creations, it is all based on imagination and ingenuity.  Enjoy!
