Taniya Nayak: By taking three old closet doors that were distained to the dumpster. I created unique headboards that are now the focal point of this bedroom by simply adding paint and accessories I recreated this guest bedroom for less than a 100 bucks and in half a day. I love this project because it’s a neat way to let you something you already have. I am using some old by fold doors but if you need to go out and buy them they’re only about $30 per set depending on the size of your bed you can keep on adding doors. I’m using a full size bed so I’m going to use one full set and half of another that means three panels to complete the look. I’m going to use the back of the closet doors which is a nice flat surface and basically a black canvas for me to work with. My first step is to remove the hinges and potty the holes to get this doors ready for painting. All I’m using here is sinkable painters potty, this way I get a nice smooth surface with no holes. My surface is prep and ready for paint, I’m doing stripes to add a little bit of interest to this pretty simple and playing room. I’ve chosen to use five different colors from my strips; I’m starting with my base colors because they are the lightest. Simply leave a little negative space in between each color, when it dries tape around it and fill it in with your accent color. My first paint is dry and now I’m ready to add more stripes and my accent colors, before I paint my stripe I have to make sure that tape is press firmly to the door. This way the paint will bleed and I have a nice clean line when I pulled the tape off. I’m only using this color in this few spots and I want it to stand out and puff off the boards. I choose my colors to keep a nice sophisticated palette; this is a guest bedroom so I want it to appeal to the masses. It’s a good idea to pull the tape while the paint is a little bit wet, that way it won’t pull the paint with it. See the smile of my face? That’s why I love this it looks good, the random pattern of the stripes add a bit of rhythm to the room. It’s been three hours and my doors are dried, putting the headboard in place is the simple task. A little bit of heavy duty for I will do the trick, using neutral colors for the bedding will draw the eye directly to the fabulous headboard. Since the classic doors are refurnish data and cost me a thing, all I spent was $30 on paint which left me 20 of cash for bedding. Sleeping in this bed use to cause nightmares, now with the addition of by fold door headboard, a top of freshly dress, flash bed is nothing but sweet dreams from here. Best of all you can rest easy, knowing that it was completed in a half a day and for under a $100.
