Chinoiserie Foot Boards

If you've been following my blog you know I love to reinvent objects.  I purchased a pair of twin bed foot boards from a dealer friend. No head board, no rails in sight.   I loved the chinoiserie painting on them.  Also, if you know me, you know I buy items I love without having a plan for them.  My husband has finally learned not to ask what I'm going to do with something.

When I  got them home I realized they were the same olive color as my mid-century modern buffet which I use for my tv stand. 

Work in Progress

I knew I would come up with some use for them in this room. Woo hoo!
Perfect for window valances.  

Love the Chinoisserie Detail

What do you think?  Like it or too out there.
I can't imagine how wonderful the head board must have been. 



  1. I love this idea! It is always great to see things repurposed!

  2. I LOVE this!! You've done such a great job!! It's so inspiring seeing things used in new ways. You've got me thinking what *I* can repurpose!!
