Quick Tip #23: Old Doors As Headboards

{click to enlarge}

Time for another little Décor Quick Tip series… this one is going to be about all the awesome things you can do with old or reclaimed doors! I have stumbled upon some seriously cool images and ideas, so keep your eyes peeled in the next few weeks!

I want to try this super popular tip myself…

#23  Add oodles of character to any bedroom by transforming old solid timber doors into a one of a kind headboard! Any salvaged door with interest or moulding will work, whether it’s vintage or slightly new. Rickety barn doors or weathered, paint-peeling farm doors will add a rustic shabby chic element to your bedroom or repurpose louvre doors for a French county or seaside flair. Leave the doors distressed or give it a glossy coat of paint.
