Hmmm, how should I start- long time no see? or should I say long time no write...less cliche- more accurate!? What an amazing few weeks! No, we haven't completely finished the kitchen reno- not even close. Free time has not been abundant. Our household is in the thick of baseball season-two boys, three teams- one of the teams takes us all over...NJ, Albany, Buffalo and we love it! Yes, we've been doing lots of traveling and have pity on me, I just returned from NYC where I helped my daughter (my one and only daughter, sniff,sniff) set up her new apartment for the summer. A big, wonderful and exciting step for her!
I was inspired to hop back into posting because last night I was with one of my daughter's friends whose moving into an apartment in Manhatten. She recently purchased a couple of old doors that she wants to use for a headboard. I'm hoping to help her out with this endeavor...for now, here is some inspiration for her and anyone else attempting this project.
|Although these doors are not part of the headboard, I just love the look with the sconces.|
One of my favs!

Scour antique shows, garage/barn sales for some great finds.
Craigslist is also a great place to find doors for this purpose. I think LR, my daughters friend, picked up three beautiful doors, with hardware, for five dollars each.
So many options... So many different looks... Which one appeals to you!?
