Repurposing Old Fence Boards

I am all about this blog that I recently started following, {House*Tweaked}, so you will probably be seeing a few more posts of some true gems I found there.
Here are two really awesome ones to start with.

There are two things that I love about the author of this blog, Dana, and her husband (Handy Hubby) besides how amazing their projects turned out. One is that the old fence boards they used have family history behind them, which was important to them - they were able to get them from Dana's husbands grandmother's farm. Another thing is that these projects show how well the couple works together to tag-team projects. In her words: "I come up with some random, off-the-wall idea…Handy Hubby breaks out the power tools and brings it to life…I add a dose of personality and creativity to the final product. Really, that’s usually how things work over here. And in the end, we are left with this meaningful, heartfelt piece to view day in and day out. It’s a good life, I tell ya."

Here is the beautiful {love headboard} and the awesome {barn door}.
