We love making headboards out of these old doors - there is so much character to each one of them. This headboard was shipped to one of our Customers in FL.
The doors we use are usually 80+ years old and have had their share of various paint treatments over the years.
These old door headboards make a great conversation piece and are sure to become the focal point of any bedroom.
Keep us in mind if you're not up to doping the trim work and want us to do that for you. We do work with a large DIY Client base that have us do the work and they will add the finishing touches themselves.
I love working with natural elements when crafting and making things for the home. Rope, Jute, Twine and Sisal Rope are my go to standards. I put together these amazing clips on Hometalk on my board "Designing with Rope Ideas".
I have always wanted to attempt making a kitchen island and I finally found the perfect one to make...... From and inspirational picture found on PINTEREST to a Kitchen Island I'll Love
forever, cause it was made by my own 2 hands....
To see The step by step instructions I used to make this ...Please visit My BLOG PAGE..
I noticed that a few people have commented on maybe adding a piece of Plexi Glass to the top of this....... Sorry I forgot to say in the post that I went and purchased some Plexi glass and have it sitting on top of the Door.... It's not shown in the picture cause I purchased it after I had taken all the pics... Sorry for the confusion... But thank you all for your input :)..... It definitely is a must for sure..... a lot easier to clean and no food getting into all the Crevices ......
When Gwyneth and I started our May design challenge of creating a "Dream Blogger's DIY Home Office", we knew that finding pretty and practical ways to store our supplies would need to be
a priority. While we've put our DIY Union Jack Trunk to good use, our arsenal of DIY supplies runneth over. You know that we have a habit of saving every scrap of fabric, piece of broken jewelry and loose sequin we can get our paws on!
To keep supplies close and clutter at bay, we repurposed an old Dumpster Dive and used panels from My Overlays find to make our DIY Office Storage Unit.
