Yes, how did you secure the PVC pipe?  I want to do this. 

 

Love the doors and the picket fence.  I have a picket fence that I'm going to use for a headboard in our lake house. 

I love the shutters one... but really looking for something that I can have hooked to the bedframe... Not stuck to the wall.. How would I secure the shutters better so that I can attach them to the bedframe instead of the wall???

 

How did you secure the PVC pipe?

Lovely ideas there! my favorite was the one made from the PVC pipe !

 

how did you secure the three hollow core doors?

I love the picket fence!  We have a beach theme for our little girl's room, and considered making her bed look like an Adirondack Chair.  She's not quite 2, so she's not ready for a "big-girl" bed yet, but brainstorming for her, and when we move our 4 year old boy out of his toddler bed to give to her, and put him in a twin bed - hate to buy a whole bed, when we've got the base metal frame in the attic, but I hate the way a bed looks when it is sitting by itself with no headboard.  But I hate the prices of beds!

really great ideas, very chic and by no means cheap-looking, thanks good looking out!

Yeah...really! I love the idea of the door/s. 

Ready to do a BIG ole' Tutorial???
