*Turn a HeadBoard into a Table*

Here is an easy project!
I needed a table for my foyer, so I got to thinking....
I called in the handyman (my husband) and let him in on my new plan...that he would have have to build! ha ha
We had an old headboard and footboard, it was not a matching set and I had almost thrown them out a few times. I am so glad I didnt! He just cut the side posts off and glued a board to the bottom of the headboard to make the table deeper. He used a very long screw and went through the top to screw on the side posts for legs! Done. It is now a table! I did add a fresh coat of white paint to the whole thing.
And by the way... I did tell my husband thank you and gave him a big kiss!
He seems to go along with all my crazy ideas and God Bless him for it!

Oh my goodness.... Good News! I have been featured on Bobbypins Boardwalk!
I am delighted , I just love Jan's Blog anyway!

Love the table! I would have never in a million years thought of that, and it's fantastic. If I ever have a spare headboard, I'll know what to do with it. :)
