Old Door Headboard
While we're on the subject of re purposing, here's another great idea for you. Old doors are being used for all sorts of things these days – coffee tables, shelving, even headboards, and why not? The wonderful detailing on these pieces bring so much character to a room. What's more, they're pretty easy to transform. A bit of paint, a lot of sanding, you can also add a moulding to the top so you have a shelf to stack things on.We love the old door tutorial over at vintage revivals.
Diamond Buttoned Headboard
How gorgeous is this headboard? To make a headboard like this, start by deciding on the shape you'd like - high and imposing, or perhaps long and rectangular? Draw the shape out on paper, then use it as template to cut your piece of wood. Once the wood is cut to your desired shape, simply cover it in thick foam and mark on where you want the detailing to go. Take your time with this step, or you could end up with a wonky diamond. Finally cover the board with material and add the buttons. If you're after a bit of a project, this one is for you.Check out the full tutorial here at living with punks. Buttoned Down Headboard
