I needed a bed for my guest room, but wanted to add some personality with it. I knew these thrift store chairs were perfect when I found them.

I cut some braces to screw on in order to make the headboard and footboard act as one unit.

          Perfect even for a kids bedroom. They r always wanting a change and this is inexpensive enough to do just that.

              @Julie Collier thats partly why I loved the idea of chairs, they can be changed if wanted pretty easy, and the chairs are multi-use. so if you get tired of them as the bed, you can use them for something else. and the braces and brackets did minimal damage to them.
