A new use for Printers Type Drawers

I recently moved my guest room to an upstairs space and was having such a hard time deciding what to do over the bed.


I like the industrial look for this area, but also with a bit of a retro flavor. The opposite wall is covered with old survey maps and so I thought I'd go with a survey theme and tried the idea below. 
But I just was not feeling it.

 So I just popped a map up there and decided to wait until inspiration hit as to what to do for a head board etc.
 While watching the tonight show the other night, it hit me!

See that wall detail, what does it remind you of???

It reminded me of Printer's type drawers. So off to my barn I went, at 10:30 at night, grabbed the 3 drawers I had in my stash, and made me a headboard. 
Industrial, without being too cottage-y. And the surveyor poles are moved to the side, I'm gonna call it done.
