A Re-purposed Head Board

A while back I re-purposed an antique headboard
into a chalkboard memo board...

Truth be told when it was finished I hated it...
Didn't like the color, the knobs I used, or the writing...

So I re-purposed the re-purposed headboard one more time...
After all, it's a girls prerogative to change her mind...

I repainted the headboard with Annie Sloan 
chalk paint in Paris Gray. A much better color than the green!

Instead of the word "Notes" I glued on wooden
trim I found at a yard sale...

and a scrabble shelf for the chalk.

This re-purposed memo board looks a heck of a lot better now!

It sold quickly at the flea market last weekend!

  1. I can see why it sold so quickly, it's a great looking memo board!

  2. Very pretty shape to it, Susan! Sometimes I'm not happy with my outcomes either and wind up making changes, too.

  3. It's fabulous! Not surprised it sold! What flea market and where??????


  4. Looks great! The gray/black of chalkboards is hard for other colors to "get along" with, I think. White is always a good choice!

  5. No wonder it sold quickly. Its gorgeous. The scrabble shelf is such a neat idea!:)

  8. This so fabulous! I simply adore the transformation! Sharing today! Hugs...
