Repurposed Headboard Chalkboard Coat Rack Shelf


If you take a headboard, turn it upside down, trim a little off of the legs, add a piece of plywood, a shelf, and some hooks, you have yourself a great little family organizer.

The color is "naval" by Sherwin Williams, but I had it mixed in Behr Premium Plus Ultra at Home Depot.
