This was a fun project. A local store owner called me, knowing I was a woodworker and said she had some damaged headboards, foot boards and bed rails. Different sizes etc. This Porch Bench was made from a queen sized head board and a full sized foot board. Took them apart and fixed the damaged areas and added wood for strength.
Then I made a deal with the client who purchased it. Since a lot of clients want different colors etc for the projects I told her she could come to the shop and painted it herself. She was onboard and she and her husband came over and we had great conversation while she painted her bench!
