Benchs from headboard

We make benches using old wood beds. The headboard becomes the back and the foot becomes arms or dropped to be the front skirt. We often get the beds for little or nothing. Some we have found set out with trash. Sometimes people bring beds to our store to be made into benches.

Pattern or design used: My own design
