Headboard repurposed into Photo Displays and Coat Racks – Before and After from Facelift Furniture

This big  old vintage headboard was way beyond it’s life expectancy. As ugly as could be, I decided to get creative and repurpose this unsightly piece!

I trimmed the headboard down, and repurposed the inner panels into coat racks and photo displays.

Paint, glaze and distressing helped bring these pieces back to life. Refinished in Barn Red and Sea Blue, they popped with color.

Black Glaze accented the detail, and light distressing popped out the original wood tones.

Spray painted bull dog clips and hooks from Hobby Lobby were added to create the photo displays and coat racks.
