From Headboard to Chalkboard

I found a headboard and footboard on the curb. My initial plan was to make a bench out of it like I've seen on Pinterest, But I sawed the footboard in half and realized it was hollow (the headboard was solid).

Plan B: To saw off the legs of the headboard and make a chalkboard.
 I bought the hooks at Lowes for $1.46 each.
Not too shabby:

TV Tray

I found this TV tray in almost perfect condition. I didn't need to sand it or anything! Can't argue with that.

Of course I stick with my coastal/beach colors. Heaven forbid I do something pink.I painted the whole thing white to begin with. Using painter's tape I made straight lines and painted simple sections. Nothing to it really...

End Table Roadside Rescue

I found these two wood end tables on the curb which I am officially calling "Roadside Rescue". One of the drawers was missing a knob, but other than that they were in perfect condition. Of course the dark wood was too drab for me so I spruced them up Samantha style.
 I used an anchor stencil I drew several months. The anchors required four coats of paint. I found some old brass knobs I had from another project. I spray painted those glossy white. These endtables sold for $75 for the pair.
