Footboard Connected To My Chalkboard

So, I found this leftover footboard at Goodwill...

It started out white.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture while it was white.  Why purple?  I found a spare purple spray paint can in our basement.  I left the center white because I had an idea - why not make it into a chalkboard?  I applied the chalkboard paint with a roller.  You can also use spray can chalkboard paint.

Tah, dah!  I added two hooks thinking this could be used as a coat rack message board.  It could be put in a kids room.  The hooks could be used for dressup clothes.  They could also be used for hats.  I hope this inspires you to do someting clever with a leftover piece.
