New Obsessive Idea

I have a new obsessive crafting idea that I just picked up. I want to create a headboard from an old door! Here is a picture of one that I think is neat. I am not sure yet if I like the shabby chic look more or the clean and smooth classic/traditional look. What do you think?

Also, does anyone out there have a great down alternative comforter that they love? We are on the lookout for an affordable down alternative and we want to hear from you if you have any recommendations (or warnings).

Great craft idea and very useful!
I think both are really cool. Having said that, it will depend on what the rest of the room decor is. With the shabby chic headboard an eclectic assortment of furniture and decor would make it fit right in. With the finished headboard you might want a more "put together on purpose" look. We've always gone with the eclectic approach. We have always tended to use what we have. Early in our marriage it was more shabby CHEAP than shabby chic. :-) I'll look forward to seeing it someday at your house. Love you, Mom :-)

Way cool idea for a headboard. We didn't have a headboard for our king-size bed and it was about 4-5 years ago we bought one. But wish I had thought of your idea! If you ever found an old house being torn down, it wouldn't matter much about the condition of the wood but rather the design of the door. You could even make the door stained if you wanted to do that as well.

I used to be obsessed with using a door to make a dining room table. Forgot all about it until now! :-)
