This Headboard Got Benched

This nifty headboard project was created by Jen from Scissors and Spatulas for Somewhat Simple.  It’s got a cool backstory.  The forgotten, neglected headboard once was her husband’s childhood bed.  “It was going to be tossed to the curb until I claimed it for myself because I had a vision,” Jen tells us.  “Being the little scavenger that I am, I hauled it home and rescued it!”

Jen’s vision for this little headboard was that it could become a bench.  She sanded down the old finish and primed it with paint.  Jen handed the headboard pieces over to her husband to be cut apart and rearranged with a few additional pieces of wood into a bench.  She gave the new bench two coats of creamy white paint and then–after the paint dried, of course–sanded the bench for a distressed look.  No this little piece of family history sits in Jen’s entryway.  Lovely!
