Hi there!! FINALLY here is the home improvement project I've been teasing you with for the last few weeks! Sorry its taken me so long to get this posted... things have just been **CRAZY** around here. I've got to face that things always seem a bit crazy here, but lately, even worse than normal! I've been relocating Ev's playroom to our unfinished basement, and reorganizing a corner of my craft room, since a friend of mine gave be a gorgeous, wood, 4 drawer vertical filing cabinet for all my 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock. Also, I'm doing a prompt for another blog, and last night I gave a stamping demo at a scrapbooking night. Super fun & I got to meet some great people! But, anyway, CRAZY, and the boys are home on Fall Break right now, too.... So, as you can imagine, that really doesn't lend itself to productivity! LOL....
Ok, so, this project has been in the making for a good long while. I saw this idea in some DIY home improvement magazine YEARS ago... Then, a couple years back, we upgraded to a king sized bed, and our queen sized headboard didn't work anymore. And, THEN I bought this old door at a Habitat for Humanity Home Improvement Outlet for 12$ about a year ago.... and... in my garage it sat.... Here's what it looked like BEFORE my little makeover.
Because my bed is a king size, and the measurements were taped on the door, I knew I didn't have to cut my door down at all, but you should always measure first! :) If you do need to cut your door down for this project, make sure you cut some off of each end so it looks "even," particularly if you have evenly spaced panels like I did.
