Repurposing is a fantastic way to take make something new out of dated and discarded pieces of furniture. Older headboards and footboards are often too low to the ground for new beds, but they make great coat racks!
Low to the ground vintage footboards, like the one here painted Barn Red, don’t need their legs removed. With the new refinished look, and hooks from Hobby Lobby, a great pop of character is ready to brighten up a home.
And discarded cabinet doors are a great way to make chalk boards! With chalk board paint, the flat surface is perfect for writing on. Inverted furniture pulls are perfect for holding chalk!
