bed frame bench

Tiffany, purpleinopp GardenWeb, Z8b Opp, AL(8B AL)November 23, 2013

Found bed frame at curb. Look what DH did with it! Just needed a piece of plywood for the seat. Two cushions the size of the red one on the chair fit just right. Has anyone else made one? Only problem is, I don't know if I want to sit on it or put plants on it. (Shhhh!)

Turned out beautifully! I wouldn't be able to put plants on it...I would use it as a bench. Love the bed frame itself. Great job! We made one and it sits in our living room. Had a cushion made to coordinate with the LR furniture.

Gasp! It's a beauty.
I wouldn't put plants on it....I wouldn't let anyone sit on it either!

Thanks for the kind compliments! All of the credit goes to DH though. All I did was provide 'short person' measurements! He said he didn't want to hear any complaining about dangling feet. Not a problem with this seat.

That is great. I have thought of doing something like this but haven't found the right cast off yet. Sure don't want to use one of my antique beds!!

Looks great! I can see that it is shorter than the chair. I hate it when my legs 'dangle" too! You should get a lot of use out of that!! Thanks for showing! Hubby did a nice job on it too! Jan

Hey Purple, That bench is the bomb. I saw one in a magazine but it was made from an iron bed frame but the concept is the same. It is a beauty not a plant stand though. James in Florida.
