Fab Find of the Week: IKEA Bookcases (as headboards)

Yes, more headboard ideas. I found this tear sheet from Country Home, March 2006. This is such a great idea and it looks amazing. I always loved the idea of a shelf behind the bed, since seeing one behind Carries bed on "Sex and the City", the series. So simple, yet awesome, not to mention beneficial. I think folded blankets would look nifty inside the shelves.
This large unit above is part of the Expedit line from IKEA. This unit is $199 and you can add drawers or doors like the one below right, prices ranging $20-$35.
I also like the idea of using two narrow bookcases like the red one below instead of nightstands, then add a shelf between them, leaving a great space above for a mirror or art. All of the bookcases shown here are from IKEA ranging in price from $70.99 to $199, and the shelf is $29.99, making the bookcase headboard quite economical, as well as unique and functional.
