If you had one mantel to do whatever you wanted with it, would you rather a mantel re-purposed as a bookcase?
Or would you rather this mantel re-purposed as a headboard?
Or how about this plain ol’ modern mantel?
I like the idea of a mantelheadboard, especially since the shelf it provides gives a fun place to decorate in a way that typically doesn’t occur in the bedroom.
What do you think about re-purposing mantels – a good idea or leave them as they are?
