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 2×4′ to reinforce the seat on the maple headboard bench.
