Old Door Headboard

Needed a headboard for my queen size bed in our guestroom. Looked online and saw the high prices of $600-$700. Thought to myself, I can make it myself. Went on a hunt for a used solid wood door. In the end, all I spent was $60.00. Guestroom is now a romantic getaway for guests.

  • Beautiful! Great idea to give an old door a new purpose. The top molding elements look just right.

  • Thanks Ryobi Nation. The moldings were the hardest part. I am still learning the miter cuts, but practice makes perfect. ;)
