When one door opens...

When one door opens... make a headboard! Or coffee table!

We have a friend recently who purchased a fixer-upper home in the country outside Junction City. When I say fixer-upper, I mean total gut and redo. It looks like someone walked out of the house in 1970 and never came back, which I think is pretty cool. He was replacing all the doors, windows, cabinets -- basically everything inside and out, and asked if we'd be interested in any of it. Ummm.... hello? Of course!! The first thing that caught my eye was doors throughout the house. Not only are they solid wood (and oh so heavy) they are really cute! We picked up two of these five-panel doors, one with some fancy original hardware and door knob. 

We transformed door #1 into this amazing king sized headboard. How gorgeous is that distressed paint??? 

As for door #2, we built this super cute coffee table! The original paint color was an off color yellow, which we quickly decided was a no-no for this table. So, we painted it a bright and cheery turquoise! 

We have one more door left and we're having a hard time deciding what to do with it! Any ideas?? 

Happy Treasure Hunting,
