Our queen bedroom set was only a few years old when we decided we wanted a king size bed. We went without a headboard for the new bed until I found this beautiful old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $50.00.
There are so many adoorable headboard transformations out there burning up the Pinteresphere and I searched for the right door for a while intent on painting and adding a crown rail to the top. I couldn't believe my luck when I found one that matched our set so nicely, I didn't need to touch it. No sanding, no staining, no painting.
This door needed nothing other than someone strong to turn it on its side!
Well o.k., so it needed some two by fours, bolts, and brackets too.
My husband bolted the door to 2x4 legs and secured with brackets at the top on each side and we had a brand 'new' headboard and look for our bedroom for $50.00! This door measures 32 X 78.5 and works great as a king sized headboard.
Here is a closer look without all of the pillows.
We would have spent much more for something with this look from a furniture store. That we found this instead, saved it from a landfill, and helped a charity that provides people homes makes it that much more beautiful in ours.
