Bed to Bench

One of my most favorite furniture transformations is taking an old headboard and foot board and turning it into a lovely entryway bench. What makes these extra special is often times they are a bed with memories attached-either from their child outgrowing it but it’s too special to get rid of, or a bed that has been in the family for a while but isn’t really needed. Here you will find a few examples of recent benches! I typically use chalk paint on previously finished furniture because it sticks very well to a well cleaned, lightly sanded surface. Add some finishing wax or Poly and you have a nice durable finish!
