Old Gym Floor into New Headboard



I found some maple boards taken from an old gym floor at a local school at a salvage warehouse. My son has a sports-themed room, and I knew these boards would make a great headboard. I used my Ryobi Airstrike Nailer to attach the boards to the wall. I staggered the boards to highlight the different colors and stripes, and to resemble a gym floor.

  • Very ingenious use for a re-purposed maple slat. Congrats on your artistic and handyperson abilities. . . and by the way, creativity is never "easy."
