Next we cut it in half. Using the top part as our bench. The bottom part will also become a bench.

Next we used the head board posts to make the legs and the head board for the back of our bench.

We gave it some primer and a fresh coat of paint. We went with Woodrow Wilson White. Sold at Lowe's Home Improvement.

    Also to those that do not think it looks to be very comfortable, I don't think it was made to sit in while you watch T.V. It is a bench. Great to have at your front door or mud room. In the picture it looks like there are shoes around the area so I am guessing that is what it is being used for, as most benches are.
