Repurposing a headboard
I saw it at a garage sale. A headboard with one finial broken off. No rails.
I liked the design and knew what I wanted to do with it but they wanted $7.50 for the dern thing. And it was broken! With no rails!
There were other garage sales calling our names so Renee and I left the headboard 'til later in the day. I knew it wouldn't sell in that condition and it didn't. In the end, the garage sale people took a dollar for it!
I carted my prize home. With a power compound miter saw I cut off the other finial and evened out the broken end. It only took seconds.
I taped off the square tubing and spray painted the ends. Not solid. More of a shabby paint job of black with brown showing through.
Then I turned the whole thing upside down and fastened some antiqued chains to it.
I never cook on Saturdays but I grilled shrimp in butter with garlic and served it over brown rice and peas (quick, easy, good) to bribe IT Guy into hanging my project for me.
And he did! I love my repurposed headboard/room divider.
What do you think?
