I think my favorite thing in the whole world is repurposing things, how about you?
Amazing friends, today I am sharing how I gave this $10 thrift store spindle headboard a whole new purpose:
I always have a hard time passing up a good deal on a perfectly good twin headboard, and one that has spindles? Well that doesn’t stand a chance…it is definitely coming home with me!
One of my favorite ways to repurpose them is to simply cut off the legs:
Paint it, and add a few hooks:
Voila! An instant coat rack or perfect towel holder! So simple, and charming right?
This is painted in Bit of Sugar by Behr made into DIY chalk paint. (Recipe HERE.) I sanded then sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear soft wax.
The hooks are from Hobby Lobby and were originally black. I spray painted them in Rustoleum Robin’s Egg blue.
I put them in a Ziploc bag and shook them around to get a distressed look.
Oopsie…the one on the end there is hanging a little to the left…that’s what you get with handmade things sometimes. 🙂
I adore anything with lots of spindles!
I get questions about what I use to hang some of the things I make and I always forget to take pictures. I remembered this time! I like to use these D-ring hangers for items with a little weight to them:
I have some with two screw holes as well, that I use with really heavy items.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and simple update! This cutie will be making its way to my booth very soon.
