Repurposed Antique Headboard into Coat Rack

If only I had more space…
You have no idea how often those words cross my mind, and they definitely were on my mind today, as I was photographing this headboard-turned-coat rack to list in my shop.

Antique Headboard Coat Rack The details and shape are just gorgeous.   I used Blue Minerals Chalk Paint Powder to make chalky paint, and distressed it just enough to highlight the details.  I added 3 ornate coat hooks, although there is room to add 2 more, if a customer wants me to.

Though no one would ever see it once it’s hung up, it has a metal tag connected to the back with the maker’s information on it.  I get excited about little details like that, just because it gives me more information about the piece.

I sold the matching footboard several months ago, and had planned to keep the headboard for myself, but once again…I have more stuff than space, and I don’t have anywhere to go with it.  If our bedroom was remodeled, I would probably keep it, but since it could be a good long while before that project gets started, I decided to go ahead and list it.

If only I had more space…

I’ve been working on a lot of projects this week, but this sign I made is the only one I had time to photograph.   It’s already been purchased. Hymn It is Well with My Soul Wood Sign
