{Before & After} – Repurposed Headboards

I cant remember where i found these headboards, but they’ve been in the shop for a bit and i was finally able to get to them last week.  And ya, i could of painted them up cute to re-use as a headboard again, but i love me some repurposed stuff!

So, the legs were just cut off where they taper on the bottom with a jigsaw, then they were light sanded and primed using a dark brown tinted primer.

Next up, i painted one a fun yellow, distressed it with an electric sander and then glazed it.  The other one, i painted some spots with Valspar crackling glaze, then basic white and also heavily distressed that one with the electric sander.

Lastly i added some hooks to each and they were done!!  Easy project that is fun and unique and could be used for TONS of things!  How cute would these be in a bathroom for towels, a girls room for her dress-up clothes, a kitchen for aprons or even out in the yard to hang flowers or garden tools!   Tons of ideas come to mind!  I want one for above my potting bench…
