I was given an old headboard and some misc. other bed parts from a bed that was left in a friends house when the moved in. They gave it to me and said “be creative”. They have a nice concrete pad next to one of the back doors and had asked me to do a patio bench when time opened up. Two birds, one stone!!!
They picked it up yesterday and I was so glad they liked it. I’m always nervous when I have to be ‘creative’. They are going to paint it with an 1800’s version of the American flag. I’ll post pics again after they have done the painting.

thanks for looking!!!

That is indeed a creative idea. Great job and I look forward to seeing it painted.

Transforming a bed to a bench, that’s a great and very creative idea
