5 Salvaged Mantles Repurposed as Headboards

May 5, 2011 by

Mantles are such gorgeous pieces of architectural salvage, just begging to be repurposed into headboards.  Enjoy these DIY ideas that may have you sleeping under a mantle soon enough!

For a reupholstered mantle headboard, clear DIY instructions can be found by the OG DIY Queen Martha Stewart., and you can find brief DIY instructions at BlueCreekHome, whose lovely project is featured above.

I really liked the OldPaintedCottage‘s interpretation of the repurposed mantle, as you still feel the essence of the mantle in how she decorated it.

Hortons of Tipton via FrenchLarkspur not only repurposed a beautiful mantle into a headboard, but created the loveliest canopy bed using branches!

It does not get more romantic than this, as seen via Cottage Magpie!

In true Maison Reve style, this mantle was beautiful repurposed and looks fantastic next to the other architectural salvage pieces.

  1. I’m so glad I stumbled upon poetic home. It’s always interesting to see how people repurpose items as art, decor and furnishings. Having recently completed a page on headboard ideas
