Headboard Upcycle

59,241 Views
I got a headboard at a garage sale for $7 but was so bummed it didn't have a foot board. I've been dying to do a bench seat made from a head & foot board but I figured out this instead. A corner bench. Me and my man completed this project in a few hours. I love it. Thanks for looking y'all.

    Thanks Patti! Only extra wood needed was trim across the front and a small piece of plywood to fit the seat and BAM! A corner bench seat for a useless dead corner in my house.

    Yes Miriam! It was a fun project with my honey. It only took a few hours to do since I haven't seen one done yet. We had to wing it. Next one should be a breeze. . So glad you liked it.

    can't tell you how many "just" headboards I've seen and passed up because of no footboard. Great solution and really cute!
