Stained Headboard Bench

Lindsay from Diary of a Crafty Lady worked with her dad to build a gorgeous bench for her sister’s front porch. The project began with a headboard and footboard that Lindsay’s dad picked up. The pieces were solid wood with a nice inset design and knobs.

The headboard became the back of the bench, and the footboard was cut in half to form the sides. This is a gorgeous, solid piece of furniture. It looks like it has always been a bench. You would never know it was “pieced” together from a headboard and footboard.

    AM now doing this myself. You have given me ideas as to how to make the seat so that it is sturdy enough to hold me up. I was deliberating on how to do it, so thanks and this is the most beautiful bench ever.
