Message Central Headboard

My friend bought a wonderfully carved headboard for only $10 at a yard sale!!  What a steal!  She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with it, so I mentioned that I had seen something on pinterest from Centsational Girl – I tried to find better pics from her website, but the they were no longer available – this was the only one I could find.  It was a headboard turned into a message board – complete with hooks, knobs, and a chalk board!  We decided to try it.
Of course, I didn’t take ANY before pics!  Sorry!  Added Old Ochre chalk paint to the dark wood twin headboard after spraying chalk board paint in the middle section.  I sanded it alot and then clear waxed it.  She’s going to add some hooks across the bottom, below the chalk board section – but here’s what it looks like so far.  I told her she should cut it off at the end of the top section so it doesn’t seem as big for a wall piece.
