Headboard Becomes Cool Pantry Storage

$2.50
2.5 Hours
Easy

Recently, my husband and I visited Goodwill (who am I kidding? I'm there twice a week!) where I saw this twin headboard for $2.50. Since my husband didn't object to lugging it home, I bought it to satisfy my need for a project when we're snowed in (like now).

Transforming the headboard into a storage unit took only a few simple steps:
1. Turn the headboard upside down.
2. Attach a wire shelf (vertically) to the back to create a bin.
3. Cover a board with contact paper and attach it to the top (which was the bottom). Use the same contact paper on what is now the bottom shelf.
4. Apply washi tape.
5. Stencil

That's right, I didn't even need to paint the headboard.Everything I needed to complete this project I had on hand so the total cost was $2.50. Do I love it? Yeah! I can finally see what we have on hand in canned goods, store six-packs of soda in the bin, and have a few cubbies for laundry supplies and dog food (in the plastic bin).
The finished project--yes, it once was a headboard.
