Di you know you can turn a foot board into a cute little corner bench?
This is a project I did with my friend Cathy. We picked up this foot board at a local peddler’s mall for $6.00. Now we know there are better places to find old, orphaned beds . . . . curb shopping is much cheaper.
We cut it nearly in half on the table saw.
Then, we measured the width, and subtracted the thickness of the headboard. I don’t remember the exact numbers, but because we “butted” one end up against the other, we couldn’t cut it exactly in half.
We used a 1×4 for the brace across the front, and used a scrap piece of plywood for the seat.
Total cost of this project, some $5.00 oops paint. (our favorite color is oops) The little handle on the front is strictly for decorative purposes.
