Closet Doors+Settee = Headboard
Here it is, my new headboard made out of old closet doors and broken-down settee.
It's awaiting it's new home in my soon to be newly decorated bedroom, which is still a few weeks from being completed.
I would have loved to use the settee in a bench project, however it was very tattered and weak, so I just used the back piece and the arms for the top. I'm sure I will reuse the remainder of pieces for another project.
It was a fun, and only cost 10.00 dollars to make. $6.00 for a piece for large molding, $3.00 for settee, free closet doors , free scrap molding and leftover house paint.
I wanted the paint to look old, chippy and textured. I'll give a close up in the future with a how to on making your paint look old.
I think that there was only one guess for it actually becoming a headboard. I can't wait to see it in my new room.
