I sold my bedroom furniture… and now I need your help!
I can’t decide what kind of headboard I want to build. For a while I thought about Ana White’s Farmhouse Bed, but now I think I’d like to stick with just a headboard rather than a headboard/footboard. Hmmmm Decisions decisions!
I’m leaning towards building a headboard to look like a barn door. Easy, breezy and just the right touch of ME. Yes? No?
Here are some inspirations I’m mulling over… but please, please, please visit the original source and PIN from there. Let’s be sure credit is given where credit is due!
Ummm yea… can I have that side table… and the yellow table at the end… and the wall-mounted lamps… and the natural fiber floor…. and the yellow ceiling. Okay, Okay… can I have it all?!
Sweet French Toast actually pulled these two barn doors OFF A REAL BARN. Ok… now THAT makes me jealous. Love their perfectly worn planks. Visit her site for a step-by-step on how to safely (and thoroughly) clean barn wood!
Have you met Our Vintage Home Love? I SWOON over everything she creates. So incredibly talented. My sister was lucky enough to win a set of her handcrafted Walnut Breadboards. Ugh… lucky! Her boards are also authentically old, but I think I could recreate the look.
Lively Grace used this barn door in her son’s room. I’m thinking something like this would fit perfectly under the window.
Down to Earth Style created this bold red headboard out of real barn doors. I think I’ll stick with a weathered white or wood tone, but I like the lines of these doors.
Okay, so those are just some photos to get your opinions flowing. Here’s my concern…. I’m a “horse person”… and I don’t want people to confuse my barn door headboard with a love for all things western. That’s definitely not the case. I don’t want fringe… or 80′s Western Decor… or anything really that resembles southwestern decor. I just like a rustic touch… maybe with a twist of industrial. Hmm Maybe I should rethink this whole headboard and come up with an industrial twist?
Ugh! See! I’m completely torn.
Opinions… please! Leave a comment and let me know what you think. This gal needs some help!
