    Hello Deborah, My husband and I have plans to make a head board with a door. We plan to go either to a salvage yard or a thrift store to find an old door. I would like to find a door with a little "character". If you can't find exactly what you're looking for, you can attach scrolls, appliques, etc. We plan to turn the door on it's side and attach some sort of mantle on top. We are going to secure it into the studs in the wall. You could achieve your beach theme by painting it a shade of blue and with pictures and knick-knacks. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    If your going for a beach look I would hang a large fishing net from wall. You could than add starfish and sand dollars to it. It would even look good with fairy lights strung behind it.

    Hi Debbie, you could use pallet wood. You can usually find them free around town. Here's a link to a simple, easy to build beachy headboard: http://www.99pallets.com/pallet-headboards/build-a-simple-pallet-headboard/
