My favorite thing

My favorite thing about my bedroom is the headboard.

(please ignore the pillows, I'm working on it)

Besides being super cute, what makes it better is that I paid $5 for it at some random side of the road junk shop in the middle of no where. I wasn't exactly looking for it, but I was drawn to a pile of old doors and there behind a couple of beat up/ plain jane others, was this beauty. I have done nothing to it but add some hooks to the back to hang directly on the wall. It was this color, had this weathering and was even a smaller size than most doors. Its like it was made just for the purpose of being the headboard for my double bed!

I'm not even sure how I got it in my car, but I knew when I saw it (and the price tag) I had to have it! Clearly this door was meant for me and while other pieces may come and go, this one will stay with me forever!

  5. Very nice. What a great idea you had for that door, clever girl! I've been thinking about what type of head board I want for my bed and this is it. Do you think I could get so lucky??

  6. Ooooh, this looks fabulous. We have a twin bed that needs a headboard- I wonder if it'd still look good if the door was vertical?
    We have a friday fun finds party- we'd love it if you'd link up!

  7. absolutely delightful! My college daughter did this same thing with a chippy white door in her apartment. I hopped over from KoJo Designs. Please accept my invitation to drop in at my place one day soon when you get a moment. until later...
