Chalkboard from Headboard

Gail from My Repurposed Life had this headboard sitting in her garage for over a year. It was actually much easier to repurpose than Gail had realized, requiring just some unscrewing to remove the panels and legs.

Without the panels, the headboard had plenty of empty space to be transformed into a chalkboard. Gail even repurposed a piece of trim to act as a ledge for chalk and a eraser. Gail’s work is so seamless you’d think that trim had been there all along!
