Make It Work.

Awhile back I did a little tutorial on our headboard.  
But with a 2 year old and another one on the way in June we have finally decided to take the plunge and get a king size bed.  Which means that we have to change the configuration of our room.  We decided to do this before the bed arrives so everything is clean and organized. But I couldn't let go of my sticks...because...they make me feel like I am sleeping amongst the trees.  I admit that I am a little bit granola.

So we moved the dresser in front of the sticks (I know it looks like a buffet is).  Now I can go to sleep looking at them.

But there is a problem.
With our bed under the window the metal blinds which, I have always detested, are all the more troubling.  I am on the hunt for some fabric that will cover the blinds and offer the illusion of a headboard.  I am thinking of something chocolate brown and cream but as I will be purchasing this material at a thrift store, I have learned to not be too specific with my musings.

As always, I will keep you updated.  Please send me any ideas or inspiration you might have to solve this problem.

Ahh, a king-sized bed!

Perhaps Idea #1 (with hinges attached to your wall on either side of your window so the antique window frames act as 'shutters')?
