Futon Arm Rest Repurposed into Coat Rack – Before & After from Facelift FurnitureIt’s not often that dumpster dive for furniture, but one of those few times I have, I came upon a couple futon arm rests. I saw potential. Still attached to the frame, I unscrewed them, and then ideas starting churning in my head.

After filling in the hardware holes with Fix-It-Stick putty, I repurposed this armrest into a coat track and a photo display.

I painted, glazed and distressed the piece in Barn Red and Black Glaze. Hooks were added from Hobby Lobby, and clips spray painted black were added to hold photos.
