I have 2 very large pillows that are used as decor that go against the head board with other's in front to decorate the bed. I just have no use for them in that capacity. I don't have a headboard an was trying to think of a way to use them for that purpose by possibly incassing them? any suggestion's would be greatly appreciated! they just don't work sittin on bed. size is "28 1/2" long , "37" wide an "5" deep. they are puffy, although to some extent may pushed into some sort of a frame that is used as a headboard?? HELP, Im open to any suggestion's? I see such wonderful idea's people have here. have a great day. Karen :O)

    Do you have anything hanging on the wall above your bed? I'm wondering if part of the problem is that the pillows look like they are just sitting there because the entire wall doesn't look finished...

    Hello yes your right there is nothing hanging on the wall at all let alone above the bed? an yes I know I need to finesh the wall and bed. BUT I have a husband that will lay on them which I don't want, he find's them in the way, an when you go to bed of course due to ther size you need to put them elsewhere! I am only 5'3" he is 6'4" an due to his being so tall, they are in the way. As I mentioned I was kinda hopin someone had an idea of how I could basicly use these as a headboard, ? incase them, utilize them somehow, an for this to be part of the wall decor? something so that we don't have to move them ea nite, nor lay on them. they are a cream, pretty with a rustic goldish trim. very thin an the material of the pillow itself has a beautiful print to it, again all cream. thank you for your comment. and would love if you or anyone has any suggestion's.

    Eurosham pillows are usually 27x27" - So yours are super sized! I'd make a new cover for them and pop them on the floor for floor pillows. Stack them up next the to media console or under a table. Use a fun indoor/out door fabric - which is all on sale right now.

    How about building a "shadow box" of sorts to mount over the bed? Using that as a headboard by putting the pillows in it. This could be painted a coordinating color or even something bold to spice things up. This shelf can either be left plain or place pictures, candles, etc on top.

    How about putting tabs on their long side and hanging them from a decorative curtain rod at the head of your bed? That would get them out of the way and give you a headboard at the same time..

    I agree with Neita, it would work as a great head board!!!

    I agree with Neita -- that way you can take them down and wash the cases as needed. If you frame them they just might gather dust with no way to clean them.
