    Very interesting, I never thought such a thing existed but apparently it does! I searched online and found a great link: Will you post a picture if you try this? I'd love to see it!

    What are you planning for the "fireplace" element? Just a brick wall, a stack of real logs with LED "flames", an electric heater that looks like a fire place? A painting of a fire? the dimensions of this component will dictate the "rough opening" of the "hearth" For a 3D effect having a "shadow box" type construction would seem the most realistic. I have seen many project go from Fireplace mantle to Headboard...but never the other direction from Head board to would be pioneering new ground.
