85 year old one panel door converted into a King size headboard.


Finished in a satin Onyx Black this one panel door headboard began its life in an old home in Dallas near SMU. A general contractor was tearing down the home when I purchased 20 doors in this same style. I added my finishing touches to it and brought it back to life for one of our Customers.

      They can be made by knotching out a 4x4 post or by using a long and a short 2x4. I include heavy duty screws and washers to anchor the legs to a standard metal bedvframe
