I have a slight obsession with beautiful doors. So I've wanted to make a repurposed, door headboard forever! I finally did it. I knew what I wanted it to look like and was determined to make it! I used 2 vintage doors, scrubbed the heck out of them, then sanded them a bit. First I added paint to the cracks and corners. I then added a weathered wood chalk paint. I still wanted a chippy look so I poured paint on a scraper and layered a soft cream and white, made the raised stencils and used decor stamps. For the door knobs I added patina paint to age them.
Fabrication~ I took the 2 doors and connected them, used 4x4's and caps to create the posts, 2 corbels and a shelf to finish the look. It was a ton of work but FINALLY have my one of a kind "dream" headboard.
Gross! But was going to be perfect!

Raised stencils & stamps

We used 6 inch screws to get it all together. Added the molding and shelf and voila! My very own farmhouse, shabby chic doors headboard.
And she's done!

    Omg I’m in love 😍!!! Did the door knobs come with the doors or bought separately? How’d you do the raised stamps? This is beautiful too btw!!
