So the wife was surfing Pinterest one day and came across a post where someone used an old door for a headboard. So $10 later after a visit to the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store, a little crown molding and a couple 2×4s and a headboard is born. Minimal skills required but I have to admit it worked out better than I thought for the time I actually put into it.

Pininterest, n., 1) Latin for stuff to make my husband do, 2) stuff to show you for you to make your husband do.

I actually love looking up ideas for repurposing and woodworking on Pinterest. I usually am showing my wife what I plan on building next, lol. Love the door headboard. Looks great :)
