Repurpose Bunk Bed – Creating Different Projects

Earlier I shared with you the twin headboards that I found for my boys bedroom.  I would have painted their existing beds, but their beds were originally bunk beds.  One of the side panels of the bunk bed broke and therefore I only had one of bunks in working condition.

One of our friends had the same issue and we sanded down on of the side rails and gave it to them, so they could fix theirs. Unfortunaley I don’t have a picture for that.

I used the slats and created this sign.  The slats were special to me, because the kids and other guests wrote notes on them.  I wanted to preserve that in some way.

Since I had no use for the other bed, I decided to give it away to one of the girls in my MOPs group.

She patched the holes that would have held the top bunk.

So next time, wait before you toss out your furniture.  Think of ways to repurpose it into different projects.
