Another trash to treasure item. We bought the headboard and footboard for this old bed at an auction for $4.51. DH is in the process of turning it into a bench for me.
I'll post more pictures as the work progresses.

How cool is that bench, now I want to go out and find my own full size bed bench. what is he going to use for the front board and seat?

He is going to use an old wooden bed rail for the front. The seat part is still a mystery. We are going back to the junk yard I mentioned above to look for something to make the seat out of.
I will never look at junk the same way again. lol

Duh, of course an old bed rail. I'd be tempted to just use a piece of plywood an inch below the bedrail front board and upholster a cushion for it.

Here is a new bench from an old bed that was here in the house when we bought it. Needs the seat and some paint and it's done.
Somewhere I have a photo of what it looked like before.

Nice, what are you going to do with these benches?!
