How to make a headboard bench out of a vintage maple headboard and foot board.
One of the best uses for an old maple headboard is to repurpose into a bench.
This full size bed into bench was one of our (Cathy and me) first benches. It was of course a curb find. We cut the foot board in half, and then cut some more off to make it sit about 18 inches deep. We used 2x4' to reinforce the seat on the maple headboard bench.
