What This Woman Does With An Ordinary Door Is Simply Amazing

Upcycling is the process of taking old products that are past their prime, and transforming them into something much more valuable. We’ve seen how to turn doormats into gorgeous works of art and how to get something new out of old light bulbs.

The video below showcases a DIY project that is perfect for anyone looking to upgrade their bedroom. It shows how you can take an ordinary door and turn it into an eyepopping headboard for your bed. It may seem like a complicated task, but once you see how simple it is, you’ll realize anyone can do it. Here to help is Rachel Ranney from the Buildipedia YouTube channel. She gives step-by-step instructions to make this DIY project as easy as possible. Here is what you need:

  • A reclaimed door
  • Wooden trim
  • Sander/sand paper
  • Rag
  • Paint
  • Brushes/Rollers
  • Hammer and nails
  • Foam
  • Batting
  • Fabric
  • Fabric glue
  • Mounting hardware

When you see the finished product, you won’t believe that it came from an old door. If you’re wondering where to get a door, you can use one from your house that you recently replaced, or you can search yard sales and secondhand stores for a good deal. Since you will be renovating, there is no need to purchase an expensive door.
