easy headboard coat rack It's so much fun to repurpose old beds into new and useful projects. This hook rack would be perfect for the mud room, laundry room, kitchen or bathroom.

easy bench made from a twin sized headboard. This two toned wooden bench would look great at the end of your bed, in your mud room, or front entry.

pallet coffee cup rack

Using free pallets to make great new projects is fun and frugal! A small pallet was remade to make this coffee cup rack.
