fill in the blank: what's above your bed? photos wanted!

Okay, i know I have only been on this forum for a week! but I am super impressed with all the talented designers that share this forum and I thought I might ask for some help. I just posted an article on ways to fill the space above your bed.
It features mirrors and art (normal stuff right?) but next week I want to feature some unique options (I've seen names, paddles that act as headboards....) and I know you guys have some hidden gems in your own homes. so if you care to share - post a comment here (with a picture if you have it) or head on over to my blog and submit your photo for inclusion in next weeks post, your designs will be fully credited...
Also, if this is a totally inappropriate request, just let me know (gently, please) and I will be super embarrassed and not do it again. Cheers!

Got a question about this project?

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE the oars! What a fantastic idea. I live on the coast, and we see lots of 'coastal' looks, but this is truly on point!

    Like Betty, I have a special quilt. Mine is a center piece my sister made specifically for my bedroom but I took it from her before she could finish it. I had a quilt I loved on my bed, and decided to use this as wall hanging. Besides the quilt, I have a floating shelf with a light in it. It holds my 2 breast cancer awareness Beanie Babies, my fan remote and the white orb is a "moon" night light. And the cross I made from driftwood pieces and a sterling silver crucifix (because everyone should have a cross above their bed!)

    I found a retro wood (1970's early 80's) headboard and painted it white. Then I dismantled two cheap tin wind chimes from Dollar tree and painted them Caribbean blue. I thought it turned out perfect.

    I painted this onto the wall.
