DIY Headboard from Old Door

As far as final product, out of all the DIY projects I have done, this is probably my favorite. We have needed a new headboard for many years but I did not ever really like what I found or if I did like it I did not want to pay the high price. I went through tons, and I mean tons of Pinterest pictures for DIY headboards and toyed with the idea in my head for a couple years before finally just doing it. I picked up an old door from the local Habitat for Humanity Re-Use store for $25 and the crown molding and paint from Lowes. I chose the color paint based on the colors of some wall hangings we have hung above the headboard (not pictured here). I do not really have how I did it step by step because I was not blogging at the time but I got the idea from this website which does have step by step. Of course I made a few changes as I went due to available supplies, time, tools and style.   I did have a before shot but for some reason cannot get it to load. The door was just a used plain white bedroom door. I did not strip the paint off the door but did sand it down a bit to help the paint I put on stick better. I also used pre-fabbed crown molding corners because it just seemed easier. :)
