Upcycling ~ from single bed head- and foot-boards to a lovely garden bench!

April 15, 2013

I got this fantastic idea for upcyling an old single bed headboard and footboard into this little garden bench from this website and have had it bookmarked for months.

I finally got round to completing it over the past few days when the sun decided to show itself. I should have taken a before and after pic (it was a standard pine single bed), but I got too carried away with my circular saw and paintbrush:D. It’s not quite up to the standard of the original inspiration, but as a little garden bench, it’s not too shabby…

    OMG you did it!!

    That’s amazing.

    I saw something similar on Pinterest and thought it was a great idea.

    It looks fantastic, you must be delighted with it.

      Thanks tiny! Yes, I think I found the idea on pinterest originally too – it’s responsible for much of my very long list of To Dos 😀
