90 year old door made into a headboard to fit both a king size and queen size bed frame.

The Decorator we worked with asked us to make the headboard to fit both a king size and a queen size bed, After cleaning and sealing the front of the door we painted the other trim details using a color still visible from one of the original paints on the door.

    I wish I had a pic, but mine is wrapped up in storage. I bought an antique fireplace mantle, stained a piece of bead board to attach to the open area and it fit a twin size frame perfectly. I was careful not to damage the mantle in case I ever wanted to

    It turned out so amazing! I love that you sealed it first. I often wonder if everyone does. Love a great chippy patina, but I don't want it all over my bedding. ;) Thanks for sharing your amazing work!
