The blogosphere is filled with many headboard benches. Well, when I saw this headboard and footboard at a yard sale for $10, I decided that I would attempt to build my own headboard bench.
First, carefully measure the foot board in half.
Next, you cut the foot board.
Next, place the cut end of the foot board against the end of the headboard, I outlined the headboard first, so I could find the center. From the outside back, I pre-drilled a hole to put a long wood screw in.
I screwed in three long wood screws, two on the top and one on on the bottom.
For the seat, pressure treated wood was measured and a little overhang was left for the seat.
I have to say, the bench has a nice roomy seat and is absolutely lovely.
Another $15 for pressure treated wood, I already had the paint.
A sweet deal that looks lovely in the garden.
