Homemade Upholstered Headboard

We needed a headboard after I went on a selling spree a couple weeks ago and sold our old one.

I wanted something soft, yet visually strong, so I decided I'd try making an upholstered one.

I had most of the materials and got a good deal on some greyish-brown wool fabric, so it was just a matter of focusing and getting it done.

I think it turned out fine.  I am not used to having such a tall headboard, but I can always cut it down if I want to.

(Sidenote: you can see the curtains I made yesterday hanging in the picture below).

I'm debating on whether to hang this painting above the bed...

...or on the wall opposite the bed (the first wall you see when you walk in the door).

Any thoughts either way?

Definitely some color is needed, and I like the picture, but almost wonder if you need something bigger? Hard to tell without it hanging up. Maybe even a large mirror? What about a different lamp shade, or a plant on one of the night stands? Looks great either way! Love the curtains.

I'd use a different picture. Something bigger. Keep your eyes open; something will turn up.
