Upcoming Blog Series – Build a Headboard Using an Antique Door

Hey Followers! Thanks for checking in with us here in the studio. A few weeks ago I helped move Ms. 2nd Look Studio into a new house, and her existing headboard was simply too big to use in her smaller bedroom. Some would see that as a problem, but we saw it as an opportunity!

She explained that she wanted a chabby chic, antique, and custom look, using an architectural element that we could repurpose…. but built quickly and on a budget! With those details in mind we drove down Nolensville road to hunt through all of the antique stores during one weekend near the move,  and we scored the perfect old door to fit our design.

In 5 weeknights we transformed that beat-up, odd sized, old timer into this trendy and budget friendly piece. We has so much fun working on it that we decided to take pictures of the whole process so that you would be knowledgeable and inspired enough to build your own!

As my free time allows in the upcoming weeks I will be posting a five piece how-to tutorial to help you plan your time and budget accordingly. Be sure to check back here, or on our twitter page for updates. We are looking forward to seeing how yours turns out!
