White Headboard Foyer Bench

Jen from Scissors and Spatulas scavenged salvaged her husband’s old, broken, decrepit (You get the idea!) bed as a young boy from her in-laws with visions of turning it into something truly fabulous.

Old Child's Bed

After a few weeks of collecting dust and cobwebs in her garage, Jen realized it was just what she needed for a “Trash to Treasure” contest and turned it into a darling white bench for her foyer. Of course you know that I love that fact that this is a sentimental piece. How fun to be able to tell her kids as they sit on it to tie their shoes that it was once the bed Daddy slept in as a child!
