Heidi blogs at My Beautiful Mess. She tells us that this old headboard was one she found for just a few dollars at a local thrift shop. Despite it’s condition, Heidi knew immediately how she could use it in her home.
Heidi gave the headboard a unique painting treatment that made it look like a vintage sign. Then she used vinyl to add something important and meaningful to her and her family: their family purpose statement. Now Heidi’s family has a beautiful reminder of their purpose that they can display with pride. This is a terrific idea for all of us as we head into a New Year with new goals.

Inspired by other fantastic repurpose projects, Tammy from Southern Flair Crafts had been waiting to find the perfect curbed items for her own creation. Her first find included a twin headboard and footboard that were free for the taking.
Tammy had been wanting to build a special bed for her rescued pooch Tucker, so this was just the jumpstart she needed to get the project rolling. Tammy pieced together the bottom halves of the headboard and footboard with some other wood to create this cozy, raised bed. It looks like a little doggie throne!

Catherine from Freddy & Petunia has been at the business of refabbing castoff pieces for a long time. This project dates back a bit, but the results are just as awesome today as they were thirteen years ago! It all started with a vintage king-sized headboard that Catherine fell in love with and purchased secondhand.
The headboard was the perfect starting point for a bench for Catherine’s mom. The dream became a reality when Catherine got three chairs from a friend and reworked them to create an upholstered seat. It’s amazing what a perfect match the shape and style of the chairs were for the headboard. Like a match made in heaven!
