Bifold Doors Headboard Overview

«»
When using prepackaged bifold doors to make a headboard, look for solid-wood construction and doors that already have hinges on them. The hinges hold the doors together as you cut them to make the separate headboard and footboard panels.

(NOTE: These instructions are for a full- or queen-size bed. For a twin bed, use four doors; for a king, use seven doors.)
