How To Build A Rustic Barn Door Headboard

We love the look of old barn doors. Ever since building the original doors from salvaged barn flooring - we have wanted to build a few more to make into a headboard.
So with the weather still snowy and cold over the weekend, and no ability to work on the chicken coop or recycled greenhouse project - it was time to cure the winter blahs with a building project! And yes, sadly, as the garage became a temporary workshop, Mary's vehicle was once again the victim and banished to the driveway :).
The headboard can be made with a variety of materials. If you want a rustic look - you could easily use pallet boards and old barn wood to create it completely from recycled materials. It can also be built from simple framing lumber. Ours is a combination of both, along with some salvaged barn hardware saved when we deconstructed two old barns.
Since this was built for a king sized bed - we built it as two separate door frames and then attached them together once in the bedroom. It made it easier
