When life gives you beadboard

So, I am a little bit embarrassed to admit it, but for the last several months this random piece of beadboard has become a permanent fixture in our bedroom. Let me explain…

Back in January (yes, I just said January) Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder and I decided to give our master bath a  little refresher: new paint, new sink, new light fixture, new faucet, and yes, beadboard. We are happy to say that we are finally done with that project (minus a few decorative touches here and there). It’s not that it was that difficult of a project and I have to say it is not *all* Mr. BEY’s fault that it took almost six months to complete. Cut him a little slack, he married the “Queen of Projects” and she has filled the last six months of his life with about a trillion mini-projects like here, here and here.
But I digress…the beadboard. 
So, this piece of beadboard was left over from out bathroom renovation. Living in a townhome, we lack everyday luxuries like a garage, tool shed, workshop and storage. This piece was too big to fit in any closet or through the attic door and too big to just throw away (I inherited my Mema’s just-can’t-part-with-it gene). So here she stands.
Now don’t get me wrong, she has been a good roommate. She’s very quiet and neat and loves listening to me ramble on…but it’s time for her to move on to bigger and better things. This weekend she will become a part of an adorable surprise project and will make one little girl squeal with delight.
Any guesses as what she might become? Aww, c’mon now, dream big for her. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think she might become or share with us any long, drawn out home projects that you have been a part of and you just might win this:

    Use it for wainscoating behind the toilet in the guest bathroom.

    I get impatient with any project I can't start and finish within a very short period of time. I have a head full of ideas and projects I want to do, but sometimes I just can't get going for fear that I'll start and never finish. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not. What's worse? Having an incomplete project or having never started something great? The battle continues!
    I can't wait to see what you whip up with that beadboard! ;)
