Is the quilt nailed directly to the wall? Are those upholstery nails? - Love it. I have some Amish-made quilts I have been trying to figure our how to innovatively hang.

Please don't nail your quilt to the wall! Hand sew a channel of fabric on the back of your quilt at the top. Stop the channel about an inch from the edge on both sides. Slide a thin lattice strip of wood through the channel and secure the two ends of the wood into the wall invisibly. You can find instructions and pictures (likely) on quilting websites, but this is what you're looking for.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The master bedroom on the second floor benefits from the south-facing back of the building. The room is decorated with a mixture of furnishings that plays off the historical brownstone and the East Village's more recent past as the center of New York punk music. The first is evident in the 19th-century parlor mirror and quilt of the same period; the headboard is custom, picking up on the old quilt. The second is found in the framed T-shirt, an original from the Fillmore East, where many punk bands got their start in the 1970s.The curtains bridge (the more recent) old and new: The Sweet Dreams Security curtain looks like a standard metal security shutter but is a high design that was exhibited as part of the Museum of Modern Art's "Safe" show in 2005 and 2006. That pattern is echoed in the original Bauhaus accordion wall lamps on either side of the bed.

Good idea for headboard. Can upholster a cut to size plywood board & upholster it with decorative quilt. Voila, affordable headboard!
