How To Build A Rustic Barn Door Headboard

Beautiful Murals 5 days ago
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 to move and work with, not to mention fit through tight hallways! When finished - it measured 6' high x 83" wide.

    Your headboard is wonderful. Thanks for the nice instructions. You did a wonderful job. Just my opinion, but I think a fabulous quilt would be so beautiful on it.
