Ideas to reuse wooden bed foundation? Answered

Hello all,

I have a wooden bed foundation and I do not want to discard it. I am looking for ideas to reuse it by converting the wood in the foundation to something usable - like small patio tea table, garden shelf etc, anything small and functional for me.

Attached in an e,g. of how the foundation looks like. 

Would appreciate any DIY projects, instruction, pointers to reuse it. Thanks.

Finally - after a lot of manual work and limited resource, I did finish the patio table. Since, it was my first time combined with impatience and limited working tools - made quite a few errors. But, generally happy with the result.

(yet to touch up those spots with paint)

Thank you. Yes - they are just slats attached with some sort of staple (from a staple/nail gun) or something similar. I am going to try and create a end table with it (from here - https://www.instructables.com/id/Pallet-End-Table/).

The stats are not as thick as it should be - so will have to adjust the measurements a bit.

Take photos as you go, and write your own instructable.

Since wooden bed frames are usually made of slats, try browsing the many pallet-based instructables:
