Old Bed Turned Into a Beautiful Bench – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends!

How was last week? This is my busy season with furniture, interior design and running a retail store. That being said, I don’t remember much about last week and I’m pretty sure I don’t have any cute pictures or funny stories to share. That’s the bad news… the good news is, I do have cute furniture to share with you. Just go with it for me. ;) I know furniture pales in comparison to my kiddos cuteness! Lol!

When John came  home with this bed, I couldn’t wait to have it be turned into a bench.

I loved the shape of the top and how royal it would feel. John assembled it one day when I wasn’t home and I didn’t plan on the front being designed the way that he did it (without front legs), but he showed me how sturdy it was and I actually loved it in the end!

We painted it with Benjamin Moore’s color Simply White and lightly distressed it.  If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.

For the seat, we stained the lumber with a weathered oak stain.
