A Footboard Upside Down


I had used the headboard of this set for a bed, and the footboard remained useless. But it looked nice, so I tried to figure out a new use for it. I put it upside down and a good idea came up...
This is the original footboard I had.
I cut the upper bars...
Used the original paint but distressed...
Prepared a piece of wood that I would use as a shelf
painted it white and fixed it where I had cut the bars.
Decoupaged flowers and added hooks to hang cups.
Hand wrote "Vintage kitchen
and added a thin piece of wood at the top in order to act as an edge of the saucers I want to place at the top. I guess you don´t see the sense of all this, but you will understand now, when you see the piece finished!
Added this hanging notice board painted on both sides, kitchen open or closed!
