For this week's category "old", I wanted to show the headboard I made using a vintage settee and vintage closet doors.
The cost of the entire project was around $10.00 dollars, $6.00 for molding, $3.00 for settee, free closet doors, free scrap molding and leftover house paint.
This is what the doors and the settee looked like before they were transformed into the headboard.
I used the back and the arms of the settee for the top pieces.
I used several paint colors to achieve an old weathered paint look. I scraped away some of the paint in certain areas using a putty knife, revealing the underlying paint color.
This is how it looks in my newly decorated bedroom, I made all the pillows, using new and vintage fabric and I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
