Another Headboard Bench!

Some of you have seen my headboard benches in the past. I made this one for my friend Kelly's birthday last week.
Usually I have a footboard to cut in half and use it as arms, and a base for the seat, but not in this case. I had to build the whole bench part and front legs from scratch. I'm happy with my results.

***Note to web surfers who found this post through a Google search***
I have pictures of another bench I made on my design website, InteriorImage.com. (Click on Showhouse 2006 to see it. With that one, I used a headboard AND a footboard, upholstered the bottom, and made a cushion for it. I used it in the showhouse bedroom, and since my daughter wouldn't let me sell it, it now sits at my dining room table.

Also, if any of you out there have completed a headboard bench project, or have questions, please send me a message, post a comment, or send me a picture, and I'll include it here with a link to your blog if you'd like! It would be nice to have a whole collection of these headboards in one spot, wouldn't it? I like to see what others have done, and who inspired them!

**Alert for those near my home town!**
This coming Sunday, December 7th,2008
is the annual
Christmas by the River event in Coxsackie, NY.
Please come by and see all of the wonderful crafters and vendors.
I'll be showing my jewelry and other gifty items in the conference room at
Heartland Realty on Reed Street. It's where all the fun will be, people, so
PLEASE stop on by!

Lucky, lucky friend!
I have a headboard and footboard (already sawn in half) that is waiting to be made into a bench sitting in our garage. Hopefully, I can get to it in the summer.
You're inspiring me!

Girl, ya gots vision! This turned out great. The paint color brings out the detail even more than the white did.
