Green-Inspired Ideas I Love… Headboards made from Mantels

“Going green” does not always involve finding newly developed technologies for saving natural resources. In the realm of interior design, the movement also heavily incorporates re-purposing vintage and antique architectural elements with a focus on avoiding excessive waste. Often, the most unique and luxurious design creations originate with an item that once served an entirely different purpose. Headboards made from recycled fireplace mantels are one such “green” example that I truly love! Take a look at some inspiring photos of beautifully executed mantel headboards….
