We cut the door down and added 2x6 boards to each side to add a little on the length and add legs.
I lightly sanded the headboards and put a coat of primer and paint on. The door had quite a few dents and dings which I loved because it added to the character of headboards. The best part was the total cost of these headboards was $1.02 for the 2x6. We got both boards out of the cull bin at Lowe's for a whopping .51 cents a piece! I love a cheap make over!!
