My headboard.

I have not had a headboard for a loooooong time and I had this idea floating around in my head that I wanted to turn an old door into a headboard. So, this is what I came up with...

An up close picture. I painted it white and then stained it to make it look nice and used!
I looove my headboard!! I bought an old, beat up 5 panel door off of craigslist and with a little sweat and annoyance I was actually able to make a pretty cool headboard. I started off by sanding the door down to the bare wood and then I cut the end that was a bit longer to the same size as the other end. I painted it white, knocked the edges off by sanding, and then stained the heck out of it. I was a little nervous at first because it was soo white and then when I put the paint on it was a little darker than I was wanting but I stepped away for a bit came back and decided I liked the color that it was. This was a lot of fun and I really am happy with how it turned out!


  1. That looks really nice. Is that a king bed with a standard size door?

  2. I did use a standard size door. But I did have to trim it down. And it is a king size bed..we have too many little ones crawling in with us to have anything smaller!!;)

  3. How did you attach the wall?
