After the Headboard


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...


Hmmm.... 

The board slides out of here....


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


Hmmmmm....

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!

  4. Ahhh...perfect idea. I know what you mean about saving the leftovers. I have some leftover pieces to the garage door panel I have for my headboard.

  10. You are so good about using every last bit of things...I would have saved the piece...but it would probably sit in a pile for while :). Looks great! Laurel
