Once I finished making the Guest Room Headboard (click here for more on that DIY) I knew I needed a bench for the foot of the bed. Benches aren't too cheap if you buy them brand new. I considered making one but then the heavens opened one day at my local thrift store and I saw this beauty for the great price of just $10! I contemplated the decision of buying it and bringing it home for all of about 1 second!
It was pretty beat up on the top but that was fine with me- I had plans to cover that up anyway.
I saw this idea on Centsational Girl and it was pretty easy overall following her directions. After painting the legs white, I got to work upholstering the top.
I then added a roll of Nail head trim from JoAnn's (reg. $20 but on sale for $10). So total cost for the project was $70, more than I wanted to spend (because of the fabric- but again I can now make another bench without having to buy more fabric).
