Upcycle Saturday: Stylin' with The Leslieville Flea...When One Door Closes...It becomes a Headboard!

Welcome to Upcycle Saturday!
This week we show you how to take an old door and turn it into a headboard.  It's a super simple project and costs next to nothing!

Step 1: Acquire an old panelled door...we'd suggest shopping at The Leslieville Flea
The beauty of using an old door is that it is solid and usually made from a good quality hardwood.

Step 2:  Cut the door down to the right size for your bed

Step 3:  Sand and then finish the door in a paint colour or stain of your choice.

Step 4:  Hang the door on the wall behind your bed
* Designer Tip:  You can add molding and trimwork to the top if you want for a more decorative look

Voila!  Instant (almost) headboard thats inexpensive, stylish and eco friendly!

We look forward to seeing you at the next Leslieville Flea, November 17th, 870 Queen Street East from
