Headboard Garden Bench

Hi Everyone! I'm happy to be over here helping Denyse out on her lovely blog. I'm Tammy from Deja Vu Designs.  I'm excited to share my headboard garden bench with you.

I managed to get this cute little headboard.....Well, maybe it wasn't so cute....but as usual...I forgot the before.  I'm sorry Y'all, I'm trying to do better!  Sometimes I just get so excited....I just jump right in and start a project before getting them! I've been wanting to do  a headboard garden bench for a while..... I just hadn't found the right subject till now!

A twin is just perfect for this project.  Other size headboards work good for a regular rectangular bench....but I would think they would be a bit big for a corner bench like this one. Here's what I did: I cut the headboard  in half...Right up the center.  It already had the center I had to be careful to leave it in tact.  This meant really cutting up either side of it and reattaching the side pieces to it. Then I cut a triangular
piece of plywood to use as it's seat.

Cut a back leg...and braced it.... Cut an apron....Yes....that decorative part that I painted "FLOWERS" on. Then I painted the whole project black. Painted the word.... Aged it..... Waxed it.... Wow....I guess I didn't realize how much I DID do! She would go really well with my little cottage style water fountain like my triple sitter! Off to the booth!!!

  5. I love the triangular design! So unique!! Haven't seen anything like it. I have a twin sized headboard that's been in the garage for months...for making a bench for our front porch! We'll probably get to it by the Spring. Maybe! ;)
