Old Door - New Headboard

I had this great idea...but I needed my DH's help to make it happen.  We had an excess of old solid wood doors from the house after the renovations.  We knocked out walls, so the doors were not needed anymore for the intended purpose.  Also, we were in need of a proper headboard.  Perfect!!  Here is anold door converted into a GREAT headboard.  Just attach legs, & a little paint & voila!

The details
The Burgundy must GO!

Now we must change the hope chest at the end of the bed to my trunk!

Is this the trunk where I keep my "Junque"???

I am linking up here:  Check it out!
