I use old metal bed headboards -- wrought iron, brass, etc. -- as trellises for my garden. The veggies climb right up them, they look great and always garner comments, and they're interesting in the winter covered with snow.

Old brass or wrought iron headboards can be used as trellises in the garden and also add a touch of whimsy to the overall landscape look.
