Headboard bench

  • October 24, 2018


I’ve wanted a bench for my mudroom but couldn’t quite find a plan that I liked. I found a headboard and footboard at a flea market and decided it would work beautifully as a bench! I cut the footboard using my circular saw and used pocket holes and 2x4s to build the frame. I used 1x6s for the top and painted it with chalk paint.

  • That's so smart! We love the beading detail on the headboard/footboard rails. Great project!
