Headboard from window shutters (oh, how original!!)

A few years back, I had the windows replaced at my house. I took out the wooden ones and put pvc windows and shutters. But, the wooden ones were so pretty that I didn’t have the heart to throw them away. Turns out it was a good move. I kept them around for some time (making the house look like a construction site once again) until I figured what to do with them. And then I decided to use some of them to make………………….. drum roll……………..a headboard! (hm, I have already said that on the title, haven’t I?)


I gave them a sanding and I removed the handles.


I picked a nice off white color and gave them one coat on one side.


After they dried I used sanding paper on various spots to make the wood appear.


Finally I just placed them one next to the other on the wall and put the bed in front of them. Simple things! And this way I didn’t throw the shutters that I loved so much!
