Well I can finally check off of my things to make list, a head and footboard turned into a bench! Yay 🙂 I know, I know you see these all over DIY blogs but I have been wanting to make one since the first time I saw one. Mission accomplished!
I found the bed at Habitat for Humanity resale store for $10.00 and couldn’t pass it up. By the way that is the place to go to buy paint or anything else you might be looking for… Always try there first.
I took my time with this and didn’t try to hurry any just get it done. I painted with my DIY chalk paint 3 coats and then poly coated the whole thing. I think it turned out fabulous and is a great addition to my entryway. Perfect for sitting down to put on those boots!
My hubby said “I thought you were going to sell it”? How could I….. It was my first one……always have to keep the “first one”! I just couldn’t bring myself to part with this one… after all I have been wanting one for quite some time. It now has a home in my entry.
By the way…… am I the only woman DIYer who is driving her hubby crazy with all of the creating going on? I would love to hear your stories or is it really just me?
The little shelf has been out in my shop waiting for a redo for sometime now, I thought that it looked perfect to pair with the bench. So I painted it the same color and hung it above. The red that you see on the front is glass beads that I hot glued to the front to cover holes that previously had screws in. (I ran out of wood filler and was not going to make a fourth trip to Home Depot) so I just made it work. 🙂
