"Headboard" For My Son's Room

My son recently got a queen sized bed. We didn't have a headboard for it, so we improvised. :) We basically hung a huge flag above his bed. Here are a few pics:

Obviously he's a big racing fan. :) He's into it all...NASCAR, Formula 1, Indy, V8 Supercars, etc. He wants to work in the NASCAR industry some day. He's in college now earning his degree in business. We have a deal...FIRST he gets his degree, THEN he can pursue the NASCAR dream. :)

Here's a close shot of the flag. He took this flag with him when he went to the inaugural Formula 1 race at the Circuit of the Americas track in Austin.  

And here's how we hung it. We just used pushpins in the wall, then looped a binder clip around the pushpin. I was under strict instruction NOT to put any holes in his beloved Formula 1 Jenson Button flag. :)

Here's another pic. We just put three clips on the top of the flag to secure it. And don't worry...his room isn't always this clean. Ironically he was in Austin attending the Australian V8 Supercars race when I took these pics. :)
This flag will work for now. I'm not sure if we'll replace it with a "real" headboard or not. He may not want to take the flag down. :)

  5. I think that flag makes a great looking headboard! It makes a great focal point in the room. I'm sure that even if you did get a headboard, he would still want to hang it up above the bed again.
