What do you have on the wall above your bed?

For my entire married life (almost 8 years) I've never had anything above our bed. I'm tired of the naked wall but not sure what to put there.

  • Nothing. In fact the only thing on any wall in the entire house is a mirror that was left there by my gram when she moved out... I have never put anything up.

  • Small shelves that hold decorative junk. I thought it would add a nice touch to the room but really I forget they're even there. Come to think of it...I should probably dust those shelves.

  • One of my favorites is a shadow box picture frame stuffed with rose petals. I like a bunch of red petals. Make sure to use artificial flowers so the colors stay vibrant.

  • 2 water colors that my husband's grandmother painted.
    I have almost no free walls in my house. Between my husband's grandmother and my mother's great aunt we have a lot of original art work. I also have original art work that my mother traded for at craft shows, some family photos and some of my own photos.

  • I have two metal wall sconces with a jar that holds a tea light. Romantic but safe.

  • Funny, I asked this question about a month ago. I got some terrific responses! I wanted something to look like a headboard actually. Someone told me to put up a curtain rod and hand a drape, so I put up a fancy curtain rod and hung this beautiful, soft red throw over it. It brings my room together so nicely. I have red accents, so this looks great!

    You'll get some great responses!!

  • I don't have anything hanging on the walls in my bedroom. When we moved in we got a new bed with a headboard and foot-board. it has a wooden basket weaveinsert. I made a stencil and painted two horizontal parallel stripes with the same basket weave pattern randomly spaced around the entire room. (the walls are dark teal and the pattern is glossy chocolate brown)

  • I have my husband and my favorite colors in sheer material we went with netural colors so agreed to show our colors in the materials behind the head board . I like it and easy to take down when our son wipe his nasty hands on them.
