Awhile ago Gail from My Repurposed Life got two armoire doors for only five bucks a pop. Although she didn’t have immediate plans for them, she loved their detail. They sat in Gail’s garage for 18 months until she decided what to do with them.
After adding her mother’s refinished dresser to her guest room, Gail decided the doors would make a lovely headboard for the space. She cut the doors and used inexpensive lumber to form a brace and create her headboard. She then stained it a rich Jacobean stain to match the dresser. Have you been on the lookout for old doors? They are chock full of repurposing possibilities!
