New headboard from old doors

A friend gave me a couple of old doors he didn't want anymore so I had an idea to give my cheap Ikea bed a new headboard. I cut the doors in half and used the shorter pieces as the headboard. I painted it green but the paint didn't take very well at all but it gives it a sort of shabby chic look. Then I simply attached them to the old headboard with a bit of velcro. Cheap & cheerful is my motto :) To be honest I'm not entirely sure I like it but I'll live with it for a few days and see how I feel then. I have no idea what to do with the 2 left over pieces of door. Any ideas?
