One of my favorite projects are repurposed headboards, because they are so easy to come by inexpensively at thrift stores, yard sales, and auctions, so if you’ve ever wonded how to repurpose a cheap or free headboard, I’ve got lots of great ideas for you.
There are so many great ways to repurpose them into something useful. Some require only basic skills, and some more advanced wood-working abilities, but you’r sure to find one you’ll love!
Let’s take a look at…
How to repurpose Headboards
Signs are some of the easiest projects you can make with headboards.
My most popular sign made out of a headboard is this Chalkboard Welcome Sign.
Here’s a beautiful Amazing Grace Sign by My Repurposed Life.
I love the shape and mixture of fonts on this Bed and Breakfast Sign by Confessions of a Serial DIY’er.

And then there are Coat Racks made out of headboards:
I made a bunch of Headboard Coat Racks a few years ago.
Some of them served a dual purpose with chalkboards on them.
This Headboard Coat Rack by My Repurposed Life has little shelves on it too.
These Headboard Coat Rack with Chalkboards by Beyond the Picket Fence are just beautiful, aren’t they?
Benches are another poplar headboard project.
I’ve never made one myself, but these posts by some of my blogger friends will show you how to repurpose a headboard into one.
