Beautiful Bench from Reclaimed Materials

Over at My Love 2 Create, Mindi has been sharing projects from the laundry room redo she helped her sister with.  Since Sis was on a tight budget, most of the projects they worked on had to involve free or low-cost materials.  This bench for the mudroom section of the laundry area repurposed not one, but two items!

It all started with a pile of free pallets.  The pallet wood was perfect for constructing a bench that had a rustic feel.  Mindy designed the bench not just for sitting but for storage, too, so she built the bench with room for baskets underneath.  For the upholstery, the sisters took apart an old crib mattress and reconstructed it to be the size needed for the bench.  Topped with pretty floral fabric, this bench is gorgeous!
