Headboard and Footboard Bench

Jessica from Running With Scissors shares how she “Frankensteined” together the headboard and footboard from a dated daybed to become an outdoor corner bench. She snagged these pieces from the thrift store for only $10 to form the basis for her bench.

Jessica pieced together odd and end wood scraps for the rest of the bench in order to keep costs as low as possible. Doesn’t this look like a cozy little place for making s’mores by the fire pit?

  1. I love how cute this bench is! The best part is I never would have thought to make it a corner bench! It gives it so much more charm and fits perfect in her space!

  2. I am in the process right now of making a bench from a bed. I love the corner idea, but too late for mine. Maybe another time, but this is very cute.

  3. I got a few great outdoor shelves from Screwfix recently and
    they are amazing! I can place plants on top of or plastic boxes of the kids toys as well as
    placemat settings for our outdoor table. Love my Benito.
