I have these two boards...not sure what they are or where they came from. Might be part of a bed. Any ideas for projects? For inside or outside. They're each about 4x2.

    being light in color the are not outside wood. you do need to protect them from the weather. I would look under pallet projects not that they are, but you have only a few short boards. I agree with pat it will come to you. Great find!

    I would suggest using wood treatment on them for outside,use for the grape vines.

    Love these. Just as they are, You could make a very nice headboard, an organizer for a craft room, or place one above a fireplace mantel and hang pictures on. Looks like they are not for outdoor use. Be sure to treat the wood if you decide to use them outdoors.

    A 'backdrop' for a picture or a cluster of family photos (framed or unframed). You could even attach painted wooden clothes pins to hold the pictures.

    It appears they are for inside use.

    I think one would make a very nice pot rack in the kitchen...and you could hang one on a closet wall to hang folded scarves on....at least that is what I would do if they were mine.

    We just bought a house and it brought a ramp and I want to remove it to give me more pation space. It has this tiny porch that I would like to extend sideways to make it a rectangle porch. Does anyone have any idea how I can make this extension without having to dig holes on the ground for the poles? Or foundation? the 6 ft wide porch already has those four poles under ground. Thank you for any ideas.

    It looks like good quality wood....probably from a futon or bed. Probably need to be sealed if you end up using them outside. If you don't know what to do but they take up too much space, take them apart (I see screws) and stack the slats somewhere until you figure it out. It will come to you :)

    I would surely have used one of them in my kitchen at the ceiling to hand pots and pans as they used to do in those old time kitchens.

    love the pot rack idea also could be used together t make an outside day bed porch or swing. Oh the possibilities!!

    looks like it could be used as a trellis, if turned around may a knick knack shelf if painted?

    or even a coat rack turned around. A tie rack or if boxed around edges spice rack.
