Recycle Your Old Bedroom Furniture with These Easy DIY Headboard Projects

Out with the old, and in with the new. Whether you are remodeling or simply buying a new  headboard, updating your home with a different look is always a good feeling.

However, sometimes you can feel guilty simply tossing away old items. Rather than building a pile on your curb with forgotten furniture, consider taking on a new Do-It-Yourself project with that old headboard.

Regardless of whether your headboard was antique family furniture or a store purchase, there are endless ways to re-purpose it. If you're in need of some inspiration, here are a few simple DIY headboard ideas for you to get started:

Take a Seat: Benches and Patio Seating


From a cozy  living room seat to an  outdoor bench, there are a lot of possibilities when altering your old headboard. Some even take it to the next level, transforming their wooden headboard into a beautiful  patio swing.

Get creative and make it your own! There is a lot of variety in how to transform your bed headboard and complete this sit-tastic project.

Shelf-Helper: Hanging Shelves and Coat Racks

A hanging shelf is another alternative for getting crafty with your headboard. Any detailed wood is great for this project. It's easy to rebuild into a  coat rack or even new hanging  décor. Either way, you will be pleased to see something hanging on that empty wall.

Sign Me Up: Small Business and Event Signage


Think bed and breakfast. A large sign is essential for displaying the name of a property, restaurant or even a family lake house. Immediately giving off a homey charm, your new  DIY bed headboard signage will make all guests, customers and on-lookers feel welcome.

Create a To-Do List: Bulletin Boards and Wall Art


If none of the above peak your interest, maybe try something similar to this  announcement board. Instead of using a bulletin board, fill your re-purposed headboard with photos, invitations or a grocery list.

You can even create a  chalkboard, to write important family messages, using a simple chalk paint spray.

Cuddle Up: Pet Bed


Still looking for another idea? If you have pets, this DIY bed for two is a perfect fit. Just add a finishing touch with their favorite toys, and they will be sure not want to leave their cozy bed. Who says pets don't deserve a  real bed too?
