I admit, I find some odd things while online shopping but this one is both odd AND useful. I’ve been shopping for for an upholstered headboard for a little while now but, as always, have been looking for a cheap n’ cheerful solution (Craigslist? hand-me-down? law of attraction?)
Check out these headboards: they look like inflated twin mattresses covered in microsuede (or traditional fabric or faux leather) and you just paste them up on the wall with velcro tape! You can find them at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and on Overstock (who has the lowest prices of ~$50)
Most reviewers are pleasantly suprised at how good it actually looks in person (after they stop laughing at it) and, think about it, how comfortable it is to lean against! I’m definitely getting one because it’s right up my alley: cheap, innovative and quirky.
