DIY Old Door Turned Headboard
Now, let me preface this by saying that while you can most likely use any door for this project, I personally believe the older the better! A vintage door will definitely give you a more unique appearance.
- Step 1: Remove any hinges, if needed.
- Step 2: Add crown molding. I am so thankful my husband knows how to cut crown. My head was spinning while I was watching him... everything is upside down and backwards to me.
- Step 3: Sand your piece if needed, before painting or staining.
- Step 4: Painting. I wanted to make this piece look old and really bring out all the imperfections. Dry brushing does just that, and it has been awhile since I have dry brushed, so it was fun to change things up a bit. The dark gray is Dansbury Downs by Pratt and Lambert and then I dry brushed Sculpting Clay by Valspar over the top!
