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!
