Headboard Message Center

I was lucky enough to find an antique headboard, it was  
in pretty bad shape but the pieces had a lot of potential. 



The main piece of this headboard was calling me to 
recreate it as a message board.

I sanded it down, gave it a coat of paint, distressed the paint,
 then painted a chalkboard in the center.


I added knobs to use as hooks and a scrabble shelf to hold chalk.



It was a great save!
( Ok so it's not Thanksgiving... I'm a little late on this post! LOL)


If you are interested, the footboard to this bed set 
was up-cycled here into a Bistro sign.  Enjoy!

  7. Another keeper. I sure hope no one is ever late for anything at your house, there has to be no excuse with all the clever creations they have to write stuff down on.

  8. Susan....
    What a cute idea for that headboard. You should get a Cricut or Silhouette. I use my simple Cricut Create all the time. I have actually gone through two of them in 6 years because I use it so much. You can get them on sale for around $100. I buy my sticky vinyl from Ordway sign company online. Your blog looks great and you are soooo creative!

  13. So cute - I've got my own crib boards waiting for something very similar! Chalkboard paint makes everything better, doesn't it!
