I was having a really hard time following my old website and it really wasn't very user friendly. I've decided to make a switch and am still slowly testing it out and changing it. I thought I'd start with a short DIY project I did. This idea is all over blogland, so I can't take credit for it (although I'd love to!).
I found this twin size headboard at Goodwill a while ago. It was literally hidden by pile of metal bed frames. And, best of all, it was $5. How could I resist? I knew I didn't need a bed but decided to try out the idea of a chalkboard/coatrack for my entryway. Yes, I really do redo things and actually keep them for myself!
I dragged out my husbands power saw, or whatever it is you call it, and cut off the legs so they were even with the actual board part. I then sanded, primed and painted it Heirloom White by Rustoleum. Luckily for me, there was already a nice molded box in the middle, so I painted on 3 coats of chalkboard paint. I found some great hooks that I added to the bottom. How cute is this for an entryway? A great place to hang the coats, backpacks, snowpants, etc...while leaving a different note on the chalkboard everyday. Whadda ya think:
I love that I stumbled across this idea and that this hunk of wood isn't in a landfill somewhere, but hanging in my living room!
Have you tried any DIY projects that you've discovered on the web?
