BACKDROP FOR FIREPLACE AND A PLUS

I had been trying to figure out what to do around my propane fireplace to make it look nicer, softer.  I found the headboard of a queen bed for sale on craigslist and it was the perfect solution!!
 
It looks so nice to me!!  
Originally I was going to paint it for another purpose until I realized it would give a lacy look behind the fireplace!  I am so happy with it!
Now the "plus" is from something I saw on another blog and stuck in my  head.
When I was on pinterest (so habit forming!) I saw vintage seed packets and did this with a picture holder.
 
I though this idea was so cute!  And I can change it up any time I want.  My walls are not this oddly bi-colored blue, which I think was caused by the flash.  They are actually a very, very pale blue like behind the fireplace.  These seed packets made me think of Spring!  Like it?

  2. LOVE that headboard. I think what it does is that it "fills the space" and marries the fireplace to its surroundings. GREAT idea...and I love the seed holder idea, too. xo Diana

  4. Hi Rose, Gorgeous look adding the headboard behind the fireplace. It just adds to much to finish the area nicely and fill in the space. You are so talented and have such a good eye to see this and it worked perfectly.
    Love the seed holder too.

  16. The fireplace looks incredible! I now want to paint lacy flowers all over your wall, extending from the headboard! Sort of modern Victorian!
