Painted, Glazed & Distressed Furniture

Twin Footboard Re-purposed into Coat Rack and ChalkboardHead and footboards are great candidates for repurposing, especially when they are older.  Those from the vintage era tend to be shorter in height, making them  a mismatch for today’s larger beds.

Enter the opportunity to repurpose and make a statement on your wall with one-of-a-kind coat racks and chalk boards!

This twin footboard is a great example.  Refinished in Barn Red with Black Glaze, and distressed down to white primer, it makes a bold and eye-catching statement with it’s chunky as well as linear design.  A chalkboard was created on it’s raised center panel, while a coat {or towel} rack was made on the lower cross member.
