Repurposed Headboard


This is a headboard I had left over from a bedroom set I refinished.  I sold all the pieces separately, but didn't find a home for this guy.  I didn't know how well it would sell by itself so I decided to repurpose it.  And, two is better than one, so I decided to cut it in half!



 Before



After


 I am loving chalkboards right now, and, with the insets, this was a perfect candidate!


I added these awesome hooks (perfect for keys!) I found at HL and the little embellishments on the side of the hooks.




 It's got fun little details that give a lot of character. :)





Love the larger hooks on the turquoise one, too.  Great for hanging hats or scarves by the back door or to hang jewelry from in the bedroom.

These were fun and quick little Christmas projects.  

Hope your week is off to a great start!

  1. GREAT idea :) I have a forlorn orphan footboard I'm considering making into a chalkboard with hooks at the bottom. It's solid oak and VERY heavy though, not sure if someone would actually be able to hang it on a wall....
