door as a headboard



Even though this tiny bedroom doesn't have many options, I like the idea of a door behind a bed. Cutting out the panels made a great storage for books and storage for other small things and some chalkboard paint made room for writing notes and messages.

What do you think? Could you use a door as a dual purpose headboard as well?


  1. I love this! What a great use of space! I lived in a house once that had two doors in my bedroom. I always hated having them both open for others to walk through. This would have been perfect, if I had thought of it :)

  2. Is great for small spaces, I think is a good idea.

    have a nice weekend!


  3. haha, such a cute idea! i wouldn't be very comfortable having a postbox right above my head :) (i'm just thinking of creepy monsters and joking siblings here!) thanks for sharing!

  4. If it was that particular door (or rather the name - Håkan Hellström is a very popular singer in Sweden, and yes, it is indeed his old apartment), I'd definitely take it!

  5. What a great idea! Love the bedding as well. Does anyone know where to find a similar bedspread? :-)
    Thank you for an always lovely and interesting blog!

  6. Ooh this is something great to keep in mind while I look for apartments in Boston. We have a serious housing shortage here so the rents are insane and the landlords get creative with layouts and remodeling knowing that renters will take just about anything as long as its livable.

    Thank you for posting this!

  7. we kept extra doors between entrance lobby and lounge instead of blocking the opening they just shut, recess works as a space for hanging and couple of baskets with shoes, works really well and it let us keep the character, from the lounge side we use doors as a pinboard
