1. Headboard shelf (h/t The Yellow Cape Cod)
I wouldn't have guessed that this shelf was made out of an old headboard, but it's so pretty! This would be great in almost any room of the house — I think I'd put mine in the entryway!
2. DIY chalkboard (h/t Design OCD)
A simple coat of chalkboard paint can really do wonders! The blogger also used silver leaf to decorate the edges of this old headboard, and the combination of black and silver is stunning.
3. Headboard to organizer (h/t Confessions Of A Serial DIYer)
This cute organizer is so simple to make, but it really looks impressive! This would make a great coat rack for your entryway or a nice place to hang scarves and purses in your bedroom.
4. Sofa table (h/t House Of Hepworths)
I would have never thought of turning an old headboard into a sofa table like this! This is such a cool way to give your living room a bit of extra storage space.
5. Metal headboard bench (h/t Southern Revivals)
Metal headboards aren't as common these days, but twin-size headboards are just the right size to make a bench with! I want one of these for my porch.
6. Garden gate
If you have a garden, this is another awesome way to upcycle an old metal headboard! It almost looks like it was meant to be a gate in the first place.
7. Entryway bench with storage (h/t Five Brothers One Sister)
Wooden headboards can be made into benches too! I love that this one has so much storage in it — it would be just perfect for the entryway.
8. Faux vintage sign (h/t My Repurposed Life)
If you don't have space for any more furniture in your home, you can always make an old headboard into a faux vintage sign like this one! What would you want yours to say?
