Free captain bed with headboard
Made into work bench
Size the bed down width 12” inches and length 24” inches
Added a 2x4 frame, ply board on top for more strength and 2x4 Legs ( not finished )
The Headboard added shelfs and supports
Sized down 8” inches so not as tall
The drawers came damaged I already put the drawers back together looks better already how ever they still need new slide brackets And supports
Yes my work shop is under a carport cover
We are moving within a year
I soon will have a real shop and make it a dream shop!

  • Awesome way to recycle a headboard! Can't wait to see the new shop - enjoy your new workbench in the meantime!

    • Thank you for nice comment! When old furniture is tossed out they are great DIY projects 
      You have to use imagination and creativity to make awesome projects

  • I love projects made from scrap wood or discarded furniture. Nice job.
