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.
