Needing a headboard

I have been wanting to make a headboard for us for over a year now. It seems that fall is my time to be inspired, now I just need to decide:

Upholstered? if yes, what shape? nailhead trim? or perhaps an old slavged door with crusty old paint finish would be a better option.

Thoughts? I will keep you posted with my progress, hopefully it won't take me another year to get it completed!

FYI: this is Kristen posting, not PJ:-)

So glad you clarified who was posting. Can't have people out there thinking otherwise. Make sure there a way to secure stuff to the headboard. Oh jeez, did I just post that?

What about a tufted fabric headboard? Love the room!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I've done upholstered (a few times) and the old door thing. I like the door more (if you can find one that is the right size) but it isn't as comfortable to lean against. Can't wait to see!
