Here's how a cast-off twin bed
purchased from a resale shop for a thrifty $25
transformed into a wonderful bench.
I've discovered the fun of re-sale.
This bench will be part of a joint project we are working on.
When the project is complete, I promise more photos.
The headboard became the back of the bench,
and the footboard was cut in half to make the sides.
Trimming another 6" from each piece
made the sides fit perfectly.
Reinforcement was needed to make the seat sturdy.
A little measuring, sawing, gluing and clamping
was needed to make everything fit just right.
Once the seat was in place,
it was time for me to fill the nail holes, sand prime and paint.
My favorite part!
Now I need make a cushion.
Voila! - a very wonderful, recycled bench.
And where will this go?
But I will give a hint.
It will share the spotlight with this little cabinet,
another recycled piece of furniture.
Both will soon have a new home.
