Iron headboards are a popular kind of metal headboard. Many manufacturers decide to go with a lighter metal, like aluminum when building headboards, but the style is basically of thin and intricate iron curves or scrolls. Iron has a tenancy to rust, but iron headboards shouldn’t rust because they should be coated or painted, finished in some way that inhibits the oxidation of the iron.
