Headboard Idea

This is a headboard made from an old door. My husband and I collaborated on this project. He built the outside frame, and I then painted and distressed the headboard. Project cost $40! LOVE IT!

Wow Great Place
That looks to be a 5-panel door, turned on its side, with trim at the end and along the top edge. Doors are perfectly sized for headboards! Antiqued paint treatment makes it look vintage.
You should easily be able to google all sorts of DIY instructions on turning a door into a headboard!
