Farmhouse King/Vintage Door Headboard with tin panels

We used the modified king-size plans from the farmhouse bed to make this headboard. Instead of the planks, we used a vintage door that we cut to size, but the rest is according to the plans.

In each panel, we put a piece of painted, distressed ceiling tin, since this was our "tin" anniversary.

We used pocket holes to attach the door to the posts. My first time to use the jig!

This is so cute. I love the Tin ceiling tiles. I've always walked past them at HD and wanted to use them for something but never knew what to use them for. I love the idea of u using them because of your Tin anniversary. Turned out beautiful

Thank you! It was my husband's idea. He's a really great gift giver. For our cotton anniversary he rented me a cotton candy machine!

He thinks out side of the box. What a great cotton gift. I got my husband DKNY towels. haha. (he always complained that ours werent soft enough. I think we stopped at wood because it got too hard. I cant even think of a wool gift since we live in Southern CA. You sound like you have a good man.
