Headboard And Footboard Bench

Use parts of old furniture to make brand new one!
We featured a few examples of this DIY furniture: Entry Bench and Kids Arbor Bench. Because of their simple structure, they are not hard to create even for beginners. This time I want to show the bench made from old bed’s parts. As I wrote many times before, I am a huge fan of upcycling, and this tutorial is one of my favorite.

Kristi, the owner of Addicted 2 Decorating website, explains and shows many photos of how to make this piece of furniture step by step. I'm very impressed with her ​​creativity. Sometimes I have good ideas ;) but I'm sure I would have never came up with such tutorial on how to change headboard and footboard into a bench. It’s ingenious.
