This is a bench I made for my mom as a x-mas gift.

Its all curbside finds except for the decals my girlfriend picked up at a yard sale.

The paint and stain were picked up for free off Craigslist.

This is my first post at JM, love the things yall do, keep up the great work and have a great christmas.

You'll need to make another post of it in your happy mom's house :-)

Were the back section and front section from the same bed or
from 2 separate things? (Just curious.) I really like this design. Glad you shared it with us and glad you're on board.
