Dreaming of Doors

So my husband thinks I have gone totally mad because our home is completely decorated and I now want to change what is already done but I can’t stop thinking about making a new headboard for our bed. Take a look at the pics below and see why I am having my new obsession! I LOVE old doors used as a headboard. For me the more banged up the better. I guess we will just have to see who wins the door as a headboard fight! And hey, its recycling 🙂

 This room is by far my favorite picture and really it is so simply done but the two big statements in the room compliment each other perfectly. The beautiful chandelier becomes more casual beside the rustic old doors making it a perfect combination.

Both of the below rooms have a more modern feel to the furniture but when you throw in a couple of doors behind the bed you make such a design statement!

I also love the idea of the dark wood like in this picture! This door has a more traditional feel of a headboard but it still adds beautiful character to the room!

What do you think? Am I crazy to want old doors as a headboard 🙂

  1. Looks amazing, you’ll need lots of pillows if you want to be comfy as doors aren’t soft like an upholstered headboard but they do look awesome! PS. tell hubby that decorating never ends!
