This was one of my wife’s wedding presents. Our first large purchase as a couple was a very nice mattress set. We felt this investment would lead to more sleeping together. ;) Five years on and I must say, sleeping anywhere but home is a trial.
I picked up these two antique doors for $30 for the pair. They were rough and stripping them down was some work. The posts are just 4”x4s” with caps made from 2”x6s” Bed hardware can be had for a pretty good price at some of the hardware supply houses. I really like the keyhole detail of the old hardware I’ve always thought that someday I’ll get glass door knobs to make it a bit more fancy.
I made the pictures a bit old fashioned to match the concept. I hope you enjoy them an are inspired when you see an old door. I’d like to make a glass top table from an old door someday too. So many old doors have such character.
