I sometimes feel like my bedroom gets the most makeovers in our entire house, and it usually starts with a new headboard. But don't let that old one go curbside; it has another calling in life.
A fresh coat of paint and some scrap pieces of wood helped Karla at It's the Little Things repurpose a free curbside find into a useful bench on her porch (pictured above).
Nia went the extra mile and cushioned her headboard bench when her antique bed frame didn't accomodate modern mattresses (found via Design Sponge).
This unique bench featured on Apartment Therapy was made using an old headboard and two wobbly chairs. Conversation starter? I think so!
And of course, let us not forget the smaller people in our homes who quickly outgrow their sleeping arrangements. A Diamond in the Stuff took an old crib side and used it to make her useful bench.
I'm thinking this project is perfect for entryways, porches, and other empty spaces in your home that need a little pick-me-up. Personally, I'm thinking this is a good spot to discuss with my kids why markers and walls aren't good companions.
Where would you put a headboard bench?
