I love a great repurposed headboard project. I first showed you how I painted this small foot board in one of my contributor posts for Homeright titled Maintaining Your Finish Max.
I first painted it black, which is really the key to getting a great coat of red. You can see that I used a really bright red over the black, but look at the fabulous color I got! I love a deep glazed red, my favorite being the repurposed piano front I have in my kitchen.
I used a cheap chip brush doing a light coat with a dry brush effect.
I recently ordered a LOT of hooks from D Lawless Hardware because they have great prices and I have a LOT of headboards.
I love the way these hooks look on the red bed.
It makes a fabulous coat rack or will even hold scarves and or jewelry.
During the holidays it can even be used to hold stockings!
Here you can see it on display at Glendale. It actually sold pretty quickly.
There are some questions how I hang these on the wall . . .
I use these d rings to hang all of my coat racks.
I sure wish I had a need for one of these, I really like them quite a bit.
