I'd like to share my audition project for So You Think You're Crafty with you. That's right, I'm competing in Season 13 of the weekly crafting competition. The actual competition starts on September 10, so be sure to check in each week and vote for your favorite project.
I decided that it was time to whip our guest bedroom into shape. We hadn't really done anything in there since we moved in. It was acting as a holding ground for some furniture and other junk that didn't have a permanent home yet. We had a queen mattress, box springs, and basic bed frame, so I decided to start with that. We needed a fun headboard to set the tone for the room.
About two years ago, I ran across a Craigslist ad for a bunch of old doors. The seller was asking $100, but there were about 40 doors. Somehow, I convinced my husband that this was a good idea and he and my father in law drove a truck and trailer a hour away to pick up my treasures. My LARGE stash of doors has been sitting in my parents' barn ever since. I've used a couple of the doors here and there, but there are many projects still waiting to happen. That winter (see the snow?), it was starting to warm up and I was getting the itch to get outside and work on a project, so I started scraping the white paint off of this door. I stuck it back in the barn and let it sit until now.
I set up my bed frame and got it ready for the headboard.
