Use your metal bed headboards home furnishings. Try wiring glass votive holders of one side of it, and prop up the front of your fireplace for a warm-weather fire screen. If your headboard is a queen-size or king-size, hang it on the wall over the couch instead of the expected framed painting.

Hang the headboard on the wall above your vanity or dresser, and then attach the mirror to the end, making the headboard framing the mirror.
