Make This Salvaged-Mantel Headboard

With its clean lines, a simple Federal-style mantel is a serious flea-market score—whether or not you have a firebox to surround. It finds new life here as an elephant headboard

The first step in its rehab: Strip the peeling paint. We used an eco-friendly gel stripper and hit the bare wood with an orbital sander before priming and painting. For the opening, we made an upholstered piece by taking 1x4s around the perimeter of a piece of plywood. Two-inch-thick foam rests in the center. We covered it with a layer of batting, followed by fabric. Brass nailhead trim lends a finishing touch. Deck screws attach it to the mantel. Gives curling up in front of the fireplace a whole new meaning.
