Door Becomes Twin Headboard

A FREE garage sale door was the inspiration for a twin headboard. The upper part of the door had a square glass, that was removed and a 2 x 6 was added to each side for width. The joint caused by the 2 x 6's being added were covered with small decorative wood trim. The door was turned upside down, so the bottom became the top.  A wood scroll piece was added in the upper center. Crown molding and a top board capped off the top. I then painted it white, stained it and then dry brushed it white again. The knob and backplate were put back on and the metal bedframe was bolted to the sides.
