When we are at The Southern Belle’s home we try to do things for her that she and her fiancée just don’t have the time to do. This trip Hubby replaced the shower head and fixed it so that Sweet Maeby can get her shower without getting TSB (The Southern Belle) all wet too. I decided that my project would be to make a fun headboard for the guest room.
I love the Restore. There is one really near TSB’s home. I am a huge supporter of Habitat For Humanity and I am all about repurposed items.
At the local Restore we picked up a solid wood panel door for $10.00.

Door From Restore

It was a bit dirty and I hated the brass hardware, but otherwise it was in good shape. Hubby removed all the hardware,

I gave it a shower and scrub then Hubby cut it down to 61 inches. That meant he had to cut from both ends in order to make the panels even and he did it with a circular saw. I think he missed his table saw on this one.  No pictures because I was standing on the end of the door while it was being cut.

The door was painted white on one side and off white on the other. I opted to use the white side and touched it up at the cut ends with white spray paint. I found a can of greenish black called Charleston Green for $2.00 in the oops bin at Home Depot. A can of glazing medium and a cheap paintbrush later I was good to go. This was my project at the Pinterest Party. No pictures of the glazing because I forgot to make sure my SD card was in.

Hubby attached two by four legs to the back of the door and bolted it to the frame. I love how it turned out and I hope my daughter does too. It adds to the eclectic vibe in her guest room.

Total cost of this project was about $20.00.
