It's a magnetic chalkboard, pinboard combo!  Now I have a place to put all of my inspirations, plan my DIY and crafty ideas, and keep track of those knitting patterns I always lose.

I was itching for a project so I went to the local thrift store and picked up this headboard for $15.

I put down three layers of magnetic primer (should have done more...) and then a layer of chalkboard paint on top of that.

Then I had a piece of homasote cut to the same size and covered it with some fabric I had laying around.  Simply screw in some hooks and eyes and voila!

I'm also going to put hooks on top of the chalkboard so that the pinboard can hang over it to save some space.

Hope this inspires other people, too!

i'd like that as an actual headboard. like, i guess you couldn't get the pinup board visible, and i wouldn't want magnets potentially falling on me. but a chalkboard headboard would be cool.

Thanks everyone!

It would be cute as a real headboard, but I'm not using it in conjunction with a bed.  I might set it on top of a (non-existent) desk and then anchor it to the wall to make sure it doesn't fall over.

It's heavy enough that I certainly wouldn't want it falling on me!

Oh, this one's definitely going in my folder of decorating ideas for when I move into my own place! What about doing something similar for an...endboard? Like the bit at the end of your bed instead, obviously as long as it's not pushed into a wall and you'd be able to see it.
