After the Headboard

6:00:00 AM

The old door headboard turned out great!

But you know how I hate to have left over pieces 
when I make a project....

This was the end of the door I cut off...


The board slides out of here....

And the mitered trim pieces fit perfectly around it...


Are you with me on this?

I used wood glue and clamps and glued the trim in place...

Then I painted the trim white...

And painted the center with chalkboard paint....

Then I used an old window chain to hang it from...

And a chalkboard ledge to hold the chalk...

And now the left over piece from the headboard is a chalkboard!

Waste not, want not!
