National Thrift Shop Day August 17

Bed Frame Bench
Several years ago I purchased an old bedframe that was all nicked up, it was solid wood, and $5.00!
I brought it home and was determined to do something with it.  A year passed, and I had still not done anything with it. 

It was a couple of months before Christmas and my family came up with a great idea.  We wanted to have a "Homemade Christmas".  Every family member drew someone else's name.  My brother-in-law drew my name, and I had the perfect request! 

I decided I wanted him to cut the foot board of that old bed frame in half and attach it to the head board to make a bench.  The foot board halves serve as the arms of the bench. 

 I LOVE my bed frame bench.  It sits in the hallway upstairs, and a lot of times ends up being a catch-all for laundry and books. 


  1. That is such a clever idea! It looks great!

  2. This is darling! What a great idea! I would love it if you would come link this up to my Ta-Da Tuesday Link Party starting tonight at midnight!!!

  3. Wow. I really mean that. Wow. I want one. I can find a bed frame. Where can I find your brother? (hehe) VERY nice! Thanks for sharing.
