I recently found this headboard and footboard:
I brought them home hoping to make a bench out of them, but after looking at them carefully realized they wouldn't work. The size and shape kept reminding me of a chalkboards. After a few hours of work, here's how the footboard turned out:
For sale is a beautiful black distressed chalkboard that would function perfectly as an accent piece. Made from a repurposed footboard, this little beauty measures 41" long x 26" high x 2" deep. $55. Local pickup only. Delivery available upon request for an additional fee. Email email@example.com.
(P.S.: Check back later tonight for the headboard. Think creamy white!)
