Barn Door Headboard Hubby Built With Love

Barn door headboards.  You've seen them all over Pinterest.  I've seen a lot of variations as far as design and height, stained or not.  I told that sweet hubby Builder Man of mine what I wanted and showed him some of the pictures.  That's all it took.  He loved the idea and said that he'd make us a new headboard to look just like a couple of barn doors actually taken off a barn, size and all.

He attached a very old set of rusted hinges but we are still thinking about the rusted door pulls or handles. We're not sure what we want them to look like yet.  

The cedar chest at the foot of our bed was also made by him years ago.  I am so blessed that he is so talented.  I've always been able to just draw something or tell him and he can build it. 

We like them hung slightly slit in the middle instead of touching.  That makes the two doors look imperfect to me and is probably the way they would look closed on a real barn.   

Did I mention that he also gave our bedroom a fresh paint job?  This is our new favorite color, it's the color we chose for our major bathroom remodel last year and it just seems to go so well with any stain finish of wood.
It is Glidden Olivewood but my Builder Man just gets any paint chip I bring home color matched by the computer at his favorite paint store.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my headboard.  This was my Valentine's gift, I really think he likes me.
