I have always wanted to make a bed out of an old door. I have been looking for the right door for over a year now. I thought that the perfect door would be a 5 panel old door. and this is what I was looking for. I was going to make a queen bed frame, which would have meant a few inches off each end. It would have been the perfect size.
I found some that were perfect in Restore by Habitat for Humanity. They were charging $100 minimum for them. I thought that this sort of defeated the purpose of remaking something.
I found a few that were perfect on Kijiji but man they go fast, and are typically over priced as well if the seller as any idea how big of a fad they are at this point.
Fast forward a whole year. I am at my fathers place redoing a few pieces of furniture (the window already posted, a dresser into a shoe rack and a dresser which will both be posted soon)
I was poking around in the shed looking for some supplies to use and I see.....
I am not sure I have ever been more excited in my whole life. I got him to help dig this out and tada!
I am currently sleeping in a double. I was going to upgrade to a queen when I moved but my new place wasn't going to leave me with a ton of room for a queen. I measured the frame and the wood I had with the door... and came up with this
Once I got the knob painted and moved it into place
This was actually a little before it was completely finished. The lock is still missing here and I cut 3 inches off each side to lower it a bit. I have some pieces from a second door that I am going to be making a frame out of once I decide on something for the foot board. I also plan on painting the wall so its not white on white.
